(p.1) 1 Introduction
Innovating Democracy

Robert E. Goodin (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

In recent years, democratic theory has taken a ‘deliberative’ turn. Deliberative democrats tell us, most fundamentally, that we should shun merely adding up votes in favour of talking together. What especially distinguishes the deliberative democracy movement is its concern with finding ways of putting the theory into practice. A host of micro-deliberative innovations — Citizen's Juries, Consensus Conferences, Deliberative Polls — show us what deliberative democracy might look like in miniature.

Keywords:   deliberative democracy, micro-deliberative innovations, Citizens' Juries, Consensus Conferences, Deliberative Polls, theory and practice of democracy
