Description

As the deliberative democracy movement continues to gain momentum, the theories and practices that underlie that momentum must continue to evolve, particularly in terms of the connections between deliberative processes and policy expertise. This essay introduces "deliberative inquiry" as a way of re-conceptualizing deliberative practice as a distinct mode of inquiry which produces unique research products that can significantly impact the quality of public discourse and improve community problem-solving.
