Deliberation That Matters: Realizing the Potential for Civic Intelligence

  1. 1. Deliberation that Matters Realizing the Potential for Civic Intelligence Confessions • I embrace interdisciplinary approaches (although being everywhere generally can mean being nowhere specifically). • I support work that is intended to yield social benefit -- especially based on the citizen as actor. • I want to see the work here make a difference. (Or else why do it?) Douglas Schuler douglas@publicsphereproject.org • I don’t want to squander our intellectual, ethical, CeDEM11 and material resources. Conference for E-Democracy and Open Government Krems, Austria • I’m hoping to be controversial without being May 5, 2011 unthinkable.Why Deliberation? Looking at deliberation from two perspectives: in-the-small & in-the-large• We are in desperate need of good decisions and actions. Unfortunately they don’t necessarily result through hidden-hands, side-effects, or luck. Although the two perspectives...• Non-deliberative approaches can be exploitive, coercive, • raise different questions and destructive.• Deliberation can build civic capacity (hypothesis) • suggest different courses of action, they The real question is: Why not deliberation?? • must work together if deliberation is to actually make a difference
  2. 2. Deliberation in-the-small Deliberation in-the-large• is the process of deliberation itself • is the context of deliberation. It’s what• assumes a million forms and takes place in a happens before and after deliberation million places • looks at how deliberation plays out in• is a type of collaboration society• is purposeful • depends on legitimacy, societal “access points”, and other social factors• is one of humankind’s most important innovations! Without deliberation-in-the-large, deliberation-in-the-small• can even be done by enemies! is impotent... Civic Intelligence • Is a type of collective intelligence that addresses shared concerns effectively and equitably All of these • Is civic ends through civic means factors must be present • Is an under-acknowledged and under-appreciated for successful resource deliberation. • It always exists yet varies over time and from place to place Assertion: It’s what many of us are -- or should be -- working on!
  3. 3. Civic Intelligence Emergencies Towards Deliberation in-the-large (The demand may exceed the supply) How could it realistically make a difference? • Even a short list of our problems can be depressing. • Our efforts will need to be bigger than they are. • The elites won’t solve these problems by themselves. • Could deliberation spawn more deliberation? Could it go viral? • Yes we can! We are very capable of creating messes that • We need to build the base of useful (i.e. accessible) we can’t clean up! knowledge • As demands rise worldwide and our resources (water, • Open up social science; Relax some constraints oil, etc.) are becoming scarce and despoiled we may be creating a “perfect storm” for ourselves. • Social entrepreneurism • If we don’t change directions we’ll get where we’re heading! • e-Liberate, for example • but emergencies = opportunities • Deliberation on !5 a Day!? Challenges Conclusions & Recommendations• Professional and well-resourced cultivators of civic • Make deliberation (and civic intelligence) high ignorance (far beyond the “Loyal Opposition”) priority (and explicit)• Institutionalization of non-deliberative approaches • Break out of the routines; tweak the process! write manifestos!• Inertia & temporal differentiation • Work together in semi-autonomous and semi-• Need for funding coordinated ways• Lack of interest in actual deliberation. Deliberation • Work with lots of groups -- especially across boundaries isn‘t cool! • Theorize, experiment, and act
