Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance

Overview

The Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance is the world-leading centre in the field of deliberative democracy. In February 2014, the Centre moved to IGPA at the University of Canberra, joining Australia’s largest concentration of scholars specialising in citizen-centric governance. 
 
The Centre was originally established at the Australian National University, where it was jointly hosted by the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences and the College of Asia and the Pacific.
 Over the past decade or more the Centre has hosted over 40 visiting scholars from Europe, North and South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, produced 15 PhDs, published 12 books and over 100 journal articles, hosted eight international conferences and received nine large research grants and fellowships.

The Centre welcomes PhD students and visitors specialising in the theory, practice and empirical study of deliberative democracy. We have particular interests in global governance, democratization and environmental governance, and provide a home to social and political theorists, political scientists, ecological economists, social psychologists, and individuals from many other disciplinary backgrounds. [Read more here]

CURRENT PROJECTS

Participedia

Project Team: John Dryzek, Selen Ercan, Lucy J. Parry, Nicole Curato and Jane Alver

In recent years, there has been a rapid development of participatory and democratic innovations around the world, with new channels of citizen engagement in politics often falling outside the realm of electoral representation and legislature. Participedia is an online, user-generated collaborative project documenting this growing compendium of participatory politics. It aims to map innovative processes as they develop in almost every country, and provide researchers and practitioners with accessible information, tools and good practice.

The Australian contingent of this project builds on the existing Australian catalogue and will provide robust, systematic and practical information on the variety of democratic innovations from all over Australia. The project aims to 1) comprehensively catalogue current and past participatory Australian political processes and 2) explore emergent themes and lessons from Australian cases 3) develop a future research agenda for learning across cases to provide systematic and practical advice for researchers and practitioners worldwide. These objectives feed into Participedia’s primary aims of mapping democratic innovations, explaining and assessing their contribution to democracy and most importantly, transferring this knowledge back into practice.

Understanding and Evaluating Deliberative Systems

Investigators: Andre Bachtiger, Nicole Curato, John Dryzek, Selen A. Ercan, Eda Keremoglu-Waibler, Simon Niemeyer and Kei Nishiyama

Research Assistant: Juliana Rocha

In recent years, deliberative democratic theory turned away from a focus on deliberation within small-scale forums, towards a focus on systems embracing multiple sites of deliberation and decision-making. The shift towards a systems approach enabled scholars to move beyond the limitations of focusing on mini-publics and other democratic innovations and instead think about the various ways in which deliberative activity is dispersed in various spaces of political action. The deliberative systems approach opens up a new way of thinking about deliberation, but also raises questions with respect to its practical applicaiton and empirical investigation. This project builds upon the existing joint projects of the project partners in this field and seeks to refine the methodological tools to empirically examine and compare the 'deliberative systems' in different political systems and across different policy areas. This project aims to: 1) develop a conceptual framework for assessing the deliberative democratic quality of contemporary political systems; 2) develop a mixed method (by combining the insights gained from qualitative and quantitative methods of analysing deliberation) 3) offer empirical applicaiton of these methods in the context of individual reserach projects of the project partners.

Realising Democracy Amid Communicative Plenty: A Deliberative Systems Approach (2015-2018)

Investigators: John Dryzek, Selen A. Ercan, Paul Fawcett, Carolyn Hendriks and Michael Jensen

Research Assistants: Sonya Duus, Hedda Ransan-Cooper and Juliana Rocha

The ever-increasing volume of political communication (especially online) challenges democracy and effective policy making. This project examines whether, how, why, and to what effect discourse flows within and between different deliberative sites in the new politics of communicative plenty. We apply the idea of deliberative democracy, which puts meaningful communication between citizens and policy makers at the heart of effective governance. It develops a deliberative analysis of controversy surrounding coal seam gas in Australia, using qualitative and ‘big data techniques to collect information.

Deliberating in the Anthropocene (2015-2019)

Investigators: John Dryzek

Post-Doctoral Fellow: Jonathan Pickering

The Anthropocene is the emerging environmental epoch in which human activity is a major driver of a less stable and more chaotic Earth system, which can be contrasted with the unusual climatic stability of the past 10,000 years of the Holocene (in which human civilization arose). The implications are profound: for example we cannot so easily speak of  “restoration” ecology or environmental “preservation” because there is no going back to any ecological baseline. To date the response of social scientists has been limited, producing at most calls for strengthened global governance. This project explores the idea that a polycentric deliberative approach to the Anthropocene involving co-evolutionary relations between human and ecological systems may yield more effective governance than a top-down managerial approach. The project is both theoretical and empirical, with applications to the global governance of climate change, biological diversity, and ozone layer protection.

Deliberative Global Justice (2015-2019)

Investigators: John Dryzek

Post-Doctoral Fellow: Ana Tanasoca

This project develops an encounter between deliberative democracy and global justice, the two most prominent programs in political theory in the past decade and more, both now wrestling with problems that intersect in interesting ways as they encounter a recalcitrant global order. The two topics have become estranged in political theory, where democracy is treated as a matter of procedure, and justice a matter of substantive outcomes that cannot be guaranteed by any procedure. At the same time there is a widely-shared feeling among theorists that the two really do belong together. Amartya Sen argues that global justice requires democracy because in any real setting, multiple conceptions of justice can apply, and public reason will be needed to sort them out. Deliberative democracy can speak to this need. More importantly, without something like deliberative democracy, the standing of the agents necessary to put justice into practice is problematic, and the conditions of their interaction impoverished. This project combines political theory and an application to the post-2015 development agenda (the successor to the Millennium Development Goals).

Building back better: Participatory governance in a post-Haiyan World (2015-2018)

Investigator: Nicole Curato

'Building back better' has become a global mantra for countries recovering from disasters. This project aims to examine how this principle can be extended from rebuilding disaster-resilient physical infrastructure to rehabilitating institutions of participatory governance to ensure the inclusive and empowering character of recovery efforts. Through a multi-sited ethnography in cities worst hit by the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, a theoretically-informed and empirically-grounded analytical toolkit that gauges the democratic quality of post-disaster reconstruction will be developed. The project aims to generate insights into the precise ways in which participatory governance can also be 'built better' in a post-Haiyan world.

Deliberative Cultures (2014-2019)

Investigator: John Dryzek

Deliberative democracy is often viewed as being most at home in the constitutional settings of Western liberal democracies, and when applied elsewhere (to the global political system or non-Western societies) this association often forms a baseline against which other practices are measured. Yet if deliberative democracy is to apply to global contexts – such as that defining global justice and the Anthropocene (see other projects) – it is going to involve people from many cultures, with different presuppositions about appropriate political communication. While deliberation manifests a universal human competence to reason collectively (and as such is more universal than, for example, voting), its character varies considerably across time and place. A fuller understanding of political deliberation requires studying diverse social and political contexts. Such studies promise new insight into the various forms deliberative practice can take and the conditions under which it can flourish. The proposed research begins this line of inquiry by establishing an innovative encounter between an intersubjective account of culture and deliberative theory. This encounter will proceed initially through examination of studies in cultural sociology and anthropology that speak to deliberative concerns – even though that was not the intention of their authors. The next step will be a study of the different cultures on display in the various nodes of the system for the global governance of biodiversity. All this can be deployed in response to critics who allege a Eurocentric bias in deliberative democracy.

Deliberation and Protest: Strange Bedfellows? (2013-2015)

Investigators: Selen A. Ercan and Ricardo F. Mendonca

Deliberation and protest are usually conceptualized as two mutually exclusive ways of reviving democracy. It has been argued that protests, by their adversarial nature, hinder the quality of deliberation. The recent cycle of protests ranging from New York to Turkey, and including Middle Eastern countries and Brazil, however, show that the relationship between protest and deliberation is not as straightforward as it was once assumed.  What we observe is that protests may enhance rather than hinder the deliberative quality of democracies. Taking this observation as its starting point, this project aims to reveal the deliberative potential of the recent protests with a particular focus on the 2013 protests in Turkey and Brazil. In doing so, the project focuses on, and compares i) the architecture of the recent protests movements; ii) the type of collective action they generated; iii) the way they enabled contestation of discourses in the public sphere; iv) the way they facilitated a dialogue across difference and v) the deliberative quality reflected in public consequences of the recent protests.

 

The Deliberative Citizen: Who deliberates, when, why and how? (2014-2017)

Investigators: Julia Jennstål and Simon Niemeyer

The aim of this project is to systematically address foundational questions regarding the possibilities for improving deliberation in civil society by developing an understanding of the citizen and the factors — psychological, situational, personal, structural, etc. — that lead them to engage in political deliberation.

Technologies of Humanitarianism: An Ethnographic Assessment of Communication Environments in Disaster Recovery and Humanitarian Intervention (2014-2015)

Investigators: Mirca Madianou, Nicole Curato, Jonathan Corpus Ong and Jayeel Cornelio

The proposed research aims to assess the uses and consequences of communication environments in the recovery and rehabilitation of populations affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, one of the strongest storms ever recorded in modern history. In particular, we investigate the uses of digital technologies and innovations such as mobile phones, SMS, crisis mapping and social media by directly affected populations and humanitarian organisations.

Democracy in the Public Sphere: Achieving Deliberative Outcomes in Mass Publics (2009-2015)

Investigators: Simon Niemeyer, John Dryzek, Bob Goodin, André Bächtiger and Maija Setälä

Post-Doctoral Fellow: Nicole Curato

This project investigates the mechanisms and settings that facilitate the same deliberative outcomes achieved in small group deliberation among the wider population.

Funding: Australian Research Council – Discovery Project

 

Deliberative Democracy and Climate Change: Building the Foundations of an Adaptive System Future (2011-2015)

Investigator: Simon Niemeyer

This research seeks to develop an appropriate conception of deliberative democracy to identify those elements of democratic systems that impede the ability to identify and respond to the challenges posed by climate change and identify shortcomings in the theory of deliberative democracy and develop solutions. It does so using empirical evidence relating to the operation of deliberation in real world settings, including evidence from a sister ARC funded Discovery project on mechanisms for scaling up deliberation. As well as contributing to the theory of deliberative democracy and earth systems governance, the research will produce practical recommendations and contribute to public debate.

PAST PROJECTS

Rethinking Climate Justice in an Age of Adaptation: Capabilities, Local Variation, and Public Deliberation (2012-2014)

Investigators: David Schlosberg and Simon Niemeyer

This project aims to produce recommendations, designed by citizens and stakeholders, for climate adaptation policies in three regions of Australia. These recommendations will be based on a definition of climate justice that incorporates basic needs and resources to be protected, as identified by impacted communities.

Deliberative Democratization in China (2011-2014)

Investigator: John Dryzek

Post-Doctoral Fellow: Beibei Tang

An innovative deliberative path to democratization may be especially applicable to China, where traditional paths involving constitutionalism and party competition are obstructed or problematic. China has however allowed substantial deliberative innovation at the local level, in part to help cope with the social and environmental dislocation attending rapid economic growth. The broader intent is to develop a generalizable approach to democratization, emphasizing deliberative capacity.

The Deliberative Global Governance of Climate Change (2009-2014)

Investigator: John Dryzek

Post-Doctoral Fellow: Hayley Stevenson

Description: In taking deliberative democracy to the global level, no topic is more important than climate change. The idea is to map the key components of the global deliberative system for the governance of climate change, and assess how effectively they are working in deliberative terms. To the extent this proves to be a deliberative system in disrepair, we need to develop ideas for realistic reform of the system. The international system currently suffers from a severe democratic deficit, but any strengthening of democracy at international and global levels will almost certainly look very different from familiar models found in liberal democratic states.

Creating and Analysing the Australian Citizens’ Parliament (2008-2013) 

Investigators: John Dryzek, Lyn Carson, Simon Niemeyer, Janette Hartz-Karp, Luca Belgiorno-Nettis, Ron Lubensky, Ian Marsh and John Gastil,

Post-Doctoral Fellows: Luisa Batalha and Nicole Curato

The pioneering Australian Citizens’ Parliament was held in February 2009 in Old Parliament House, Canberra. The participants were 150 ordinary Australians, selected by stratified random sampling, one from each federal electoral district. They deliberated the question ‘How can Australia’s political system be strengthened to serve us better?’ The project generated a mountain of quantitative and qualitative data which is now being analysed.

A Deliberative Global Citizens’ Assembly (2009-2012)

Investigators: John Dryzek, André Bächtiger, Karolina Milewicz and Alessandra Pecci

Description: Building on the successful Australian Citizens’ Parliament held in 2009, the idea is to explore the prospects for a global assembly composed of more or less randomly selected participants. This can be contrasted with existing proposals for a United Nations ParliamentaryAssembly, which rely upon problematic combinations of state-nominated participants and a tortuous path to global elections.

Climate Change and the Public Sphere (2008 - 2011)

Investigators: Simon Niemeyer, Kersty Hobson, Will Steffen, Janette Lindesay, Brendan Mackey

This project develops an understanding of Australia’s response to climate change and ways to improve adaptation from a governance perspective. An interdisciplinary team will construct and use original climate change scenarios to assess public responses through interviews, survey methods, contrasting individual responses with results of deliberative forums and follow up interviews. Significant developments in methods and concepts and understanding of adaptation will have an international audience.It will produce a series of regionally specific scenarios, statement of likely responses and role of institutional design and policy in improving adaptation.

Communication Across Difference in a Democracy: Australian Muslims and the Mainstream (2007-2014)

Investigators: Bora Kanra, John Dryzek, Selen A. Ercan and Alessandra Pecci

Australian Muslims have been at the centre of media attention particularly since September the 11th. Even though they comprise no more than 1,5 per cent of the total population, the debate on the compatibility of Islamic and Western values has been very prominent. To date, this debate has focused little attention on the attitudes of Australian Muslims and how they perceive themselves in relation to Western values. This gap, often filled by negative stereotypes, has a wide range of implications in the area of contemporary governance and public policy. This research project studies the relationship between Islamic communities in Australia and the wider society in the context of ideas about cultural difference and democracy. The degree to which Australian Muslims develop a sense of belonging and social responsibility towards mainstream society is directly linked to the level of their inclusion as well as participation in Australia's multicultural scheme. This project aims to contribute to the possibilities to foster a more productive social and political relationship between Australian Muslims and the mainstream. The empirical substance consists of interviews with both Muslims and non-Muslims, with a view to mapping and analysing discourses about difference and democracy in Australia. The knowledge generated can then be deployed to identify exactly how communication across difference can be promoted in this kind of case. The research is informed by a theoretical perspective that highlights the role of social learning in deliberation in a diverse and democratic society. The project studies both ordinary citizens and opinion leaders in Islamic and non-Islamic communities.

Micropolitics of Deliberation (2005-2008)

Investigators: John Dryzek, Simon Niemeyer

Research Assistant: Selen A. Ercan

This project explores the nature of democratic deliberation with a view to improving theories of democracy and prospects for institutionalising the benefits ascribed to deliberative democracy. It aims to systematically address fundamental questions about what it means to deliberate using empirical investigation of actual deliberative process. The methods employed have been trialled with promising results and accepted as being consistent with normative deliberative theory. These involve both formal hypothesis testing and qualitative exploration of results to reveal insights about the process of deliberation. The findings will be used to re-examine theory and formulate recommendations for the instutionalisation of deliberative democracy in both Australian and international contexts.

The Theory and Practice of Deliberative Democracy (2004-2007)

Investigators: John Dryzek, Robert Goodin, Christian Hunold, Carolyn Hendriks, and Aviezer Tucker

This project examined the relationship between deliberative innovations, especially citizen forums, and the larger political contexts in which they take place. Particular kinds of institutional innovation work out quite differently in different contexts. A comparative study of consensus conferences on genetically modified foods revealed sharp  differences between the roles such forums play in Denmark (where they are integrated into policy making), the United States (where they are advocacy inputs from the margins of policy making), and France (where they are managed from the top down). A broader survey of cases also revealed systematic differences between the relatively 'promethean' position that policy makers are constrained to take, and the more 'precautionary' conclusions reached by reflective publics, causing problems for the deliberative legitimation of risk-related policy via citizen forums. A close look at Germany enabled systematic comparison of the virtues and problems of forums made up of, respectively, partisan stakeholders and non-partisan lay citizens. Another broad survey of cases looked at the variety of ways in which citizen forums, or 'mini-publics', can have an impact in larger political systems. All these empirical results can help inform the development of deliberative democratic theory, as well as the practice of deliberative innovation.
