Unlike Internet examples such as

Etsy Town hall meetings

Second Life meetings


deliberative democracy

goverment form in which free citizens or their representatives deliberate on options for decisions which are binding




encourage different perspectives aimed at common good


personal empowerment


Deliberation vs. Aggregation

Deliberation vs. Discourse

Deliberation vs. Participation


representative or participatory

sample representing the population

or all inclusive


Fishkin & Luskin, 1999

<see flyer>

process, choose sample of the population, contact them, send materials presenting, questions/decisions, arguments pro/con each, event day, opening talk, bottom up, different groupd, with moderators, moderators are skilled in making sure all opinions are heard & preventing discussion perils, such as, Cascading reputation, ..., See Infotopia book, lunch, which contributes a lot to the education/state-of-mind effects, groups discuss, groups present summaries, voting

3 themes

participation, sample of full population taking part in decision making

experts, injecting knowledge & ideas



Significant changes in, knowledge, sophistication, consolidation of solutions

examples, US, EU, China, standard tool for perfecture level decision making, Hungary & Bulgary, Decision regarding Roma (Gypsies), Australia



During the summer there will be an experiment in Israel

Online deliberation polls

Were tested in the US since 9 years ago


taking representative sample of the population helps

address the problem of scale

ensuring heterogenic & representative groups


improve decision making

not fitting questions in which people have dogmatic unchangable views

condition for deliberative polls is the commitment of the decision makers to accept the decision

New alternatives raised during the deliberation are not taken into account in the vote

unlike gov discussions (parliament, committees), deliberative polls tend to change people's opinions

there is a thorough & transparent process of reviewing the initial materials aren't biased
