Abstract

Democratic deliberation may be one of the best methods of addressing complex social issues, but can -- and often does -- suppress important differences and encourage group think. Direct contract with our fellow citizens, however, provides us with a powerful opportunity to co-create novel and transformational solutions to the very serious problems we face today as a community. This paper engages the various controversies surrounding deliberation in connection with the citizen deliberations on the Michigan BioTrust for Health.
