Conducting a Civil Conversation
Effective deliberation in a democracy depends on citizens sharing common principles such as justice, equality, and liberty. Yet controversial issues, as they are discussed in the public arena, often lead to polarization, not understanding.
In response to the need for effective deliberation techniques, the Constitutional Rights Foundation has developed a civil conversation model. This structured discussion method, encourages participants to engage intellectually with challenging materials, gain insight about their own point of view and strive for a shared understanding of issues.
