Deliberating in the Real World

John Parkinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a brief conclusion which summarizes the main argument: that fully legitimate, deliberative, and democratic decision making can only be of the macro kind, not the micro. It poses questions for future research and answers a hypothetical question from the Leicester case, giving a group of protestors six reasons to think that the outcome of the citizens’ jury was legitimate, and one reason — its restricted, local scope — to think that it was not.

Keywords:   deliberative democracy, agenda setting, macro deliberation, micro deliberation, scale, localism, Leicester, citizens’ jury
