Abstract

The aim of this panel is to discuss the concept of deliberation. Deliberation takes place in different forms and stages of decision-making procedures. While the common idea of deliberation emphasizes consensus and final outcomes, dissensus –presenting opposite views and alternatives– is also a relevant part of political decision-making. ‘Deliberation’ can also be seen as a broader political phenomenon and not only in relation to democracy or representation. The panel welcomes both theoretical and empirical papers on deliberation, as an act or paradigm of politics, its conceptualizations and different aspects and implications.
