A consortium devoted to research and practice of deliberation

The Deliberative Democracy Consortium (DDC) is a network of researchers aimed at strengthening the research and practice of deliberative democracy. The activities of the Consortium are coordinated by a 16-member steering committee and more than 30 organizations. Its website aims to support, promote and institutionalize deliberative democracy at all levels of governance in the United States and around the world.

Documents are presented in a clear linking architecture with some connections to related organizations and their materials. For some sections a monthly updating rate is assured. The website also contains a blog and a wiki aiming at supporting the DDC activities and at fostering reflection on the role of deliberation and its applications.
