Democracy in Motion : Evaluating the Practice and Impact of Deliberative Civic Engagement, Paperback / softback Book


Although the field of deliberative civic engagement is growing rapidly around the world, our knowledge and understanding of its practice and impacts remain highly fragmented.

Democracy in Motion represents the first comprehensive attempt to assess the practice and impact of deliberative civic engagement. Organized in a series of chapters that address the big questions of deliberative civic engagement, it uses theory, research, and practice from around theworld to explore what we know about, how we know it, and what remains to be understood.

More than a simple summary of research, the book is designed to be accessible and useful to a wide variety of audiences, from scholars and practitioners working in numerous disciplines and fields, to public officials,activists, and average citizens who are seeking to utilize deliberative civic engagement in their communities.

The book significantly enhances current scholarship, serving as a guide to existing research and identifying useful future research.

It also has promise for enhancing practice, for example by helping practitioners, public officials, and others better think through and articulate issues of design and outcomes, thus enabling them to garner more support for public deliberation activities. In addition, by identifying what remains to be learned about public deliberation, practitioners and public officials may be inspired to connect with scholars to conduct research and evaluations of their efforts.
