"No Better Time: Promising Opportunities in Deliberative Democracy for Educators and Practitioners"
The Democracy Imperative and the Deliberative Democracy Consortium are hosting the "No Better Time" conference at the University of New Hampshire from July 8-11, 2009.
Deliberative democracy has reached a critical point in its development. Over the last fifteen years, shifts in citizen capacities and attitudes have led to a dramatic proliferation of citizen participation and deliberative practices, and in 2008 they helped to produce an historic presidential election. On the heels of these changes, new opportunities for educators and practitioners are emerging in communities, in government, and on campuses. The primary goal of No Better Time is to take stock of these developments and to consider future directions for educators and practitioners in teaching, research, and in citizen-centered initiatives.
