Subject: Deliberative democracy has been a key topic on the research agenda of many disciplines in social sciences. In addition to theoretical approaches, in recent years, there has also been a growing interest in the practice of deliberative democracy both in Australia and overseas. Given this, the workshop aims to cover both theoretical and empirical issues around deliberative democracy. It will focus on the normative principles of deliberative democracy, how these principle guide empirical research, different forms and arenas of deliberative practices, and their impact on individuals, societies and policies.
