CFP: Deliberation after consensus: Democracy, epistemic quality and public discourse

We’re inviting abstracts for a workshop on deliberative democracy to be held in Paris, France, 20–21 November 2014. Keynote speakers are Simone Chambers and Jürg Steiner.

We welcome contributions from scholars in political science, philosophy, law, media and communication, and related disciplines on any of the following topics:

  1. What is the role of consensus in deliberative democratic theory?
  2. How does agreement affect the quality of subsequent deliberation?
  3. How to measure deliberative rationality and epistemic quality?
  4. What is the relationship between expert discourse, democratic deliberation and epistemic quality in political processes?

The workshop is organized in collaboration between the research projects The consensus paradox and Why not epistocracy? at the University of Oslo.
