THESIS TITLE

"Online Deliberation and Governance: Limitations and Prospects of Practice of Deliberative Democracy Online"

THESIS DESCRIPTION

Given the speculative and optimistic views of the capacities of the internet in presenting a new medium/alternative for the Habermasian public space, the cyberspace does present a more ‘trusted’ realm for deliberation yet not as much in facilitating access to the governance process. In this regards, I intent to develop the conceptualization that can capture deliberation in the cyberspace –online, particularly in terms of assessing the differences between online and offline deliberation, privacy and trust, self-censorship and agency and their impact on the deliberation outcomes.
