JPD Issue on Participatory Budgeting

The latest issue of the Journal of Public Deliberation (Volume 8, Issue 2 – December 2012) focuses on “The Spread of Participatory Budgeting Across the Globe: Adoption, Adaptation, and Impacts.”  Guest editors for this issue are NCDD members Janette Hartz-Karp of Curtin University & Briam Wampler, Boise State University.

Here is the issue introduction:

Since its humble beginnings in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre in the early 1990s, Participatory Budgeting (PB) programs are now being adopted by governments across the globe. This special issue of the Journal of Public Deliberation brings together leading scholars expand our conceptual tools to understand why PB programs are being adopted, how governments are adapting the rules and principles to meet different policy and political goals, and the impact of PB on civil society, state reform, and social well-being. We hope that this special issues helps to bridge an unnecessary divide that seems to separate “participationistas” and “deliberative democrats.”
