Deliberative civic engagement is a growing phenomenon—but why? Who are the people initiating, leading, supporting, and advocating these projects, and what are their reasons for doing so? Under what circumstances do these processes emerge, and what are the pressures that shape how they are organized and understood? This chapter provides new answers to these questions, explains why the theory and practice of this work have been segregated from one another, and describes how they are beginning to come together.
