Problem

  • What are "new" forms of deliberation able to achieve?
  • Under which circumstances are those achievements expectable?

Method

  • Interviews with 188 experts about 24 cases of deliberation in Baden-Wurttemberg (N= 1.457)
  • Retrospective personal perception of effects

Summary

  • reasons for more deliberation (e.g. globalization, consensus)
  • requirements and possible outcome/ advantages of deliberative processes
  • differentiation between "direct vote" for or against a decision and dialogue-oriented communication about a certain topic.
  • more than half the cases are perceived as positive
