This Deliberative Democracy Lark

7.09.2006

A while back I spent some time writing about deliberative democracy. A lot of what i was writing was prompted by the work of James Fishkin. The FT Magazine had a piece on his work bringing democracy back to the people and decentralising it in a meaningful and effective way today. If your not familiar with his work or notions of democracy beyond voting give it a go.


Im hoping for a longer post later on how we might use it in Ireland. Promises promises.

    Hi Cian, I accidently moderated a comment of yours into oblivion on my blog. I don't know how important it was to you. Sorry about that, at any rate.
