Workshop, Paris, 20-21 November 2014.

Keynote speakers: Simone Chambers and Jürg Steiner.

We invite paper proposals on four 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?

Paper proposal deadline: September 1, 2014.

Where required, we’ll cover travel and accommodation expenses for paper givers.
