Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance

Thu 17 April 2014

The Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance has been officially welcomed to it's new home at The ANZSOG Institute for Governance.

Director of the Centre Professor John Dryzek also joins the Institute as one of the 3 newly appointed Centenary Professors.

The Centre made the move to the University of Canberra in March this year, joining Australia’s largest concentration of scholars specialising in citizen-centric governance. 

Originally, the Centre was 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 psychologists, social and political theorists, political scientists, ecological economists and individuals from many other disciplinary backgrounds.
