Learning from experiments in deliberate democracy: an e-forum on participatory processes for policy change (PLA Notes 46)

Ian Scoones, John Thompson

Journal article

Providing the background to this issue, the authors detail the increased awareness of Deliberative and Inclusionary Processes (DIPs) that came about through issue 40 of PLA Notes, the use of these methods in a workshop in southern India and the international debate that followed the publishing of the workshop report. This debate led to an e-forum, with many of the contributors contributing to this issue.

Participatory Learning and Action is the world’s leading informal journal on participatory approaches. Guest editors provide up-to-the minute accounts of participatory approaches in specific fields. Since 1987, PLA has provided a forum for participatory practitioners – community workers, activists and researchers – to share experiences, reflections and methodological innovations with others, providing a genuine ‘voice from the field’.
