  • Hard to say, hard to hear, heart to heart: Inviting and harnessing strong
           emotions in dialogue for deliberation

    • Abstract: This article will examine the nature and place of strong emotion related to deep identity differences that may be part of deliberative processes and dialogue that can augment deliberation by engaging emotion in useful ways. It will discuss the experience of "resonance," the value of emotional expression in relationships as well the danger that unbounded expression of emotion can pose. It will [...]

  • Social Difference and the Common Good: An Experiment on the Effect of
           Group Salience on Citizen Deliberation

    • Abstract: Mini-publics, such as citizens' assemblies and citizens' juries, typically invite a small number of citizens to deliberate on a political issue. To ensure the inclusion of different social groups, scholars usually suggest stratified or quota sampling. However, given that the sampling method is known to selected participants, such measures not only secure the presence of individuals from different [...]

  • Active Is as Active Does: Deliberative and Non-Deliberative Political
           Communication in Context

    • Abstract: The development of theories of citizens’ political communication has been hindered by a debate over whether such communication is best characterized as deliberative or non-deliberative. This article aims to overcome that impasse with a new account of citizens’ political communication informed by theories of message production and sense-making: the goals–sense-making–justification (GSJ) model. [...]

  • Judging Deliberation: An Assessment of the Crowdsourced Icelandic
           Constitutional Project

    • Abstract: This study explores deliberation as a lived experience between individuals engaged in putatively deliberative practices. While face-to-face deliberation is well documented, there are fewer empirical studies that address its online counterpart. The authors review current theoretical conceptualizations and operationalize a measure of deliberation, and then apply the measure to the case of the [...]

  • A Typology of Reasoning in Deliberative Processes: A Study of the 2010
           Oregon Citizens’ Initiative Review

    • Abstract: Deliberative democracy processes encourage people to engage in thoughtful analysis and well-reasoned discussion about a public issue. Though scholarship examining deliberative forums has expanded greatly in recent years, there is still much to learn about information processing in deliberation – more specifically, how citizens express different forms of reasoning, and how they voice disagreement [...]

  • Accountability Relations in Minipublics and Organizers

    • Abstract: This paper aims to understand accountability relations in minipublics. It shows that accountability might be weak for their participants, but not for their organizers. It discusses accountability in a descriptive fashion as a relational concept that can be weak or strong depending on the weight of sanctions. In addition, deliberative accountability has a separate section. While the deliberative [...]

  • Rights and Deliberative Systems

    • Abstract: This article maps a significant area of contribution to (and control of) deliberative democratic systems: human rights enacted in law. Thus it takes up John Dryzek’s call for ‘close study of actual deliberative systems in the terms that theorists specify’. The article [...]

  • Mini-Public Replication: Emotions and Deliberation in the Citizens'
           Initiative Review Redux

    • Abstract: Scholars have increasingly urged researchers to evaluate prior findings through replication studies that can help test, refine, and extend claims made in previous research. We agree that this is an important aspect of social science that deliberative scholarship has underutilized. To help fill this lacunae, we test our previous findings from an analysis of data from Citizen Initiative Reviews [...]

  • Persuasion or Co-creation' Social Identity Threat and the Mechanisms
           of Deliberative Transformation

    • Abstract: Deliberation’s effectiveness as a method of problem solving and democratic decision making is often seen as stemming from the persuasive power of the “forceless force” of argument to transform beliefs. However, because conflicts related to partisan polarization, conspiracy theories, and the COVID-19 pandemic often have deep connections to social identity, they may be difficult to resolve [...]

  • Local Action Groups as an Example of Participation and Development of
           Community: the Case of “Moravian Way” Local Action Group

    • Abstract: The main goal of this article is to present local action groups in the Czech Republic as participative and deliberative platforms offering a unique environment for citizen participation as well as other actors (representatives of public and local administration, NGOs, and local business interests) functioning as leaders of territorial development. The paper explores the specific case of the [...]
