Journal of Public Deliberation

The Journal of Public Deliberation is a peer review, open access journal with the principal objective of synthesising the research, opinion, projects, experiments and experiences of academics and practitioners in the emerging multi-disciplinary field and political movement called "deliberative democracy."

The principal objective of the Journal of Public Deliberation is to synthesize the research, opinion, projects, experiments and experiences of academics and practitioners in the emerging multi-disciplinary field of deliberative democracy. By doing this, we hope to help improve future research endeavors in this field and aid in the transformation of modern representative democracy into a more citizen friendly form.

The journal serves a multifaceted audience comprised of both academics and practitioners. It offers its readership an opportunity to be part of an intellectual discussion, share their stories, express their voice, and bridge the gap between theory and practice. This connection between theory and practice is central to increasing understanding and improving deliberative practice. Committed to citizen agency, voice, participation, and collaboration, the Journal embraces its global reach and seeks to encourage diverse voices to be in conversation with one another.
