Political theory has, over the last three decades, witnessed a "deliberative turn," giving rise to a growing body of work which has attempted to delineate the benefits which discursive forms of political engagement may bring for democratic citizenship. This volume aims to introduce deliberative democratic theory and public policy to those working in education, and to consider the connections of these to education for democratic citizenship. It will argue both that deliberative democracy requires an educational process and that education for democratic citizenship has much to gain from recourse to the ideas and arguments which characterise the field of deliberative democracy.
