New Article on the Spectrum of Empowered Citizen Dialogue Available Online

NCDD Steering Committee member Tom Atlee (Founder of the Co-Intelligence Institute, sent a thoughtful and provocative article on "A Spectrum of Politics and Governance Grounded in Empowered Citizen Dialogue and Deliberation" to our NCDD Discussion list on July 4, and we thought readers of our blog would also like to check it out. The article addresses the question of how to connect different forms of citizen dialogue and deliberation - from mass participatory contexts to more complex forms of deliberation with limited participation - to generate collective wisdom that is truly democratic. The article has already sparked some great conversation on the Discussion list. To read Tom's article, click here.
