Journal of Public Deliberation is a peer reviewed, open access journal with the principal objective of synthesizing the research, opinion, projects, experiments and experiences of academics and practitioners in the multi-disciplinary field of "deliberative democracy."

Current Issue: Volume 12, Issue 2 (2016) Special Issue: Equality, Equity, and Deliberation

Guest Editors: Carolyne Abdullah, Christopher F. Karpowitz, and Chad Raphael

Deliberative democrats have long been concerned with creating conditions of political equality. However, if pursuing equality means treating everyone similarly, it risks reproducing and reinforcing hierarchies that exist outside public forums. In contrast, equity means taking into account the advantages and disadvantages that have shaped participants’ experiences, which may require treating participants differently. The articles in this special issue examine how tensions between equality and equity can inform deliberative practice and scholarship.
