The keynote address will be given by Professor Mark Warren, University of British Columbia.
The workshop will focus on whether the privileging of deliberation skews the way we conceptualise and analyse democratic practices, institutions and political systems. In what ways do other theories, perspectives and approaches to democracy offer important insights that are overlooked or underplayed by deliberative democrats?
We invite contributions to the workshop that critically and sympathetically engage with aspects of deliberative democracy as a normative ideal or theory, analytical framework or set of practices.
