Public Agenda teams up with Martín Carcasson from the Center for Public Deliberation at Colorado State University to disseminate his latest thinking about the goals and consequences of public deliberation. This essay is particularly useful for public engagement practitioners who are constantly dealing with the challenges of designing effective avenues for public participation. Carcasson provides a conceptual framework to help practitioners systematically consider both their short-term and long-term goals and the strategies that will set us up for success.
