Citizen-Centered Democracy: An Interview with Matt Leighninger

“Citizen-Centered Democracy: An Interview with Matt Leighninger” is an interview published in the 2009 issue of the Higher Education Exchange, an annual publication of the Kettering Foundation. Deborah Witte, coeditor of the Higher Education Exchange, summarizes the article in the publication’s forward:

Matt Leighninger, executive director of the Deliberative Democracy Consortium … talks with HEX coeditor David Brown about the need for professionals of all stripes to value community. He suggests, “We need certain aspects of professionalization…but we need to retain some antiprofessional qualities as well.” There is a deep reciprocity between the community and professionals, he asserts, and both have expertise that is needed.
