"Deliberation Nation? Why Deliberative Democracy is our Best Option"

The DCI is excited to host Professor Daniel Layman to discuss the reasons why deliberation is a critical element of any healthy democracy. 

Deliberative democracy aspires to secure political liberty by making its citizens the authors of their laws. But how can it achieve this end in the face of deep disagreement, imperfect knowledge and limited altruism? Professor Layman will address this question by distinguishing between two forms of deliberative democracy and arguing that one of these forms can indeed overcome these three challenges, and does so in ways that are morally preferable to political systems based on voting or markets without deliberation.
