Latest issue of JPD focuses on participatory budgeting

The latest edition of the Journal of Public Deliberation (released December 2012) focuses on participatory budgeting and its spread across the globe.

Guest editors of the issue are long-time NCDD supporting member Janette Hartz-Karp from Curtin University, Australia, and Brian Wampler from Boise State University. Janette and Brian brought together an interesting and distinguished range of authors, as you can see from the list of articles below.

Here’s how JPD introduces the issue:

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 and practitioners of PB in order to expand our understanding about 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 issue helps to bridge an unnecessary divide that seems to separate “participationistas” and “deliberative democrats.”
