Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance  



Deepening citizen engagement

We are developing innovative ways of connecting the voices of ordinary citizens to political decision-making through participatory and deliberative approaches to citizen engagement.

Democratising environmental governance

We are rethinking how human institutions, practices, and principles can develop a productive relationship with the Earth system.

Innovating global governance

We are advocating for meaningful global citizen deliberation on urgent and emerging global issues – from climate change to genome editing.

Advancing theory and methods

We provide intellectual leadership in advancing theoretical debates and methodological innovations in deliberative democracy.

Building democratic resilience

We examine the role of public deliberation in highly polarised and post-crisis contexts and the possibilities for democratic transformation in technocratic and semi-authoritarian regimes.
