“Deliberative democracy” and “civic engagement” can take many forms and offer ways to strengthen democracy beyond elections.
This panel discussion brings together three experts who will introduce the possibilities and the dilemmas. Hélène Landemore, professor of political theory is at the forefront of scholarly thinking about non-electoral forms of democracy. Miguel Lago co-founded Nossas, the nonprofit nonpartisan organisation building civic engagement in Brazil. Nazir Razak is pressing for a more consultative democracy in Malaysia. This event will be moderated by Professor Ngaire Woods.
