Carnegie Mellon University

Program for Deliberative Democracy

Department of Philosophy

The program has been housed at CMU for 20 years and has established itself as a leading proponent of deliberative democracy with a focus on practical applications.

The current site (updated in 2022) is both an archive of our most salient work and a resource for indivduals and groups interested in working in the field of deliberative democracy. It contains many pdf versions of project materials used in our Deliberative Forums, including Discussion Guides and Final Reports. 

Photos displayed on these pages come from actual events throughout the years.
