When the People Speak

This chapter applies the four questions on deliberative democracy raised in Chapter 4 to a local decision-making case in a town in China. Collaborating with a leading expert on local democracy in China, researchers assisted the government of Zeguo township, Wenling City (about 300 km south of Shanghai), in using Deliberative Polling to make key decisions about what infrastructure to build. The outcome of the project showed that making deliberative democracy practical can accomplished under challenging conditions.
