Under the annual theme “Innovating Deliberative Democracy - Inclusion, Impact & Institutionalisation!", we will focus on three thematic streams: political buy-in (how to convince decision-makers to initiate deliberative mini-publics, ensure follow-up and institutionalisation?), inclusive participation (how to prevent mini-publics from reproducing structural inequalities, and how to ensure connection with the wider public?) and democracy in (times of) crisis (what are the fundamental challenges to democracy today and what potential or limits does deliberative democracy have in the context of these challenges?). On the third and final day, training sessions will be organised as part of our ‘Deliberative Democracy School’.
The Democracy R&D Annual Conference is fully booked and registration is now closed. We kindly ask for your understanding.
