Taylor Provides an Update on Russia's War with Ukraine on Campbell Conversations

Conversations in Conflict Studies- A New Model of Collaborative Governance: Deliberative Policy Analysis and Deliberative Think Tanks

400A Eggers Hall

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Guest Speaker: Ya Li, Visiting Research Professor and Fulbright Scholar, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University.  Deliberative policy analysis (DPA) is a specific kind of policy inquiry based on a public deliberation and dispute resolution process involving relevant parties and citizens, aiming to provide insights for policy makers or collaborative partners. Compared with mainstream policy analysis, DPA can better adapt to the requirement of collaborative governance or the demand of policy analysis in a networked society. A major research problem in this field is how to render DPA more operable. Deliberative think tanks (DTT), or deliberative consulting institutes, might work as an effective organizational solution for DPA practice. The speaker will present a brief introduction to DPA, including its principles and promises, and discuss the ideas and conceptual models of the DTT. A recent case of DPA practice in a collaborative governance context will be introduced. Some future research issues regarding DTT will also be discussed.
