Mapping and Measuring Deliberation

Towards a New Deliberative Quality

André Bächtiger and John Parkinson

  • Summarises the key findings from 20 years of rigorous social science on deliberation, including from deliberative polling and the discourse quality index
  • Identifies several important flaws in deliberative empirics, making deliberative scholarship more 'legible' to comparative political scientists, and deliberative scholars more effective in responding to methodological attacks
  • Provides concrete examples of novel empirical tools and strategies that political scholars can apply in real-world case at both the large and small scale
