Research output: Working paper


While deliberative democracy is driven by ideals of equality and inclusion, it has yet to confront its own particularity and its rootedness in Western thinking. In this debate, a range of scholars position themselves vis-a-vis the question of whether deliberative democracy can be decolonized. They critically interrogate the exclusions and blind spots of the deliberative democratic project and show ways forward.
