We consider expertise in interaction during small group public deliberations. Taking communication as design, we analyze the intentional design of deliberative format using invited experts to support public discussions. Through discourse analysis of one expert’s interventions into the group discussion, we suggest how expertise might best contribute to public deliberation.
