The notion of deliberative democracy has been a subject of scholarly attention since Joseph Bessette first coined the term some 40 years ago. Generally understood as ‘the idea that legitimate lawmaking issues from the public deliberation of citizens’, the theory of deliberative democracy seeks to provide answers to questions that have haunted political theory since the dawn of modern democracy.
