Deliberating in the Real World

John Parkinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines the theory of deliberative democracy and deliberative institutions, highlighting the legitimacy problems — to do with the scale of the deliberations and the motivation to participate — as experienced by the organizers of a citizens’ jury in Leicester, England, in 2000. It explains the approach and methods, outlines the argument, and summarizes five cases of deliberation in the UK’s National Health Service.

Keywords:   citizens’ jury, deliberative poll, disability politics, deliberative democracy, legitimacy, National Health Service, scale
