The Practice of Deliberative Democracy: Results from Four Large-Scale Trials.
Weeks, Edward C.
Public Administration Review, v60 n4 p360-72 Jul-Aug 2000
Four large-scale implementations tested a model of deliberative democracy that offers a practical opportunity for citizens to participate, provides citizens extensive information about the nature of the policy problem, and engages citizens in the same problem-solving context as elected officials. Results demonstrated the feasibility of convening large-scale processes in local government. (Author/JOW)
