Talking in the Halls: How Deliberative Democracy Influences Urban Governance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Throughout the 20th century, scholars of urban politics largely relied on elite-driven theories of governance. These frameworks, however, are being complicated by an institutional shift that has been taking place over the past decade: the federal and state governments have been moving to demand citizen input into the policy-making process. With discourse between elites and non-elites becoming an institutionalized feature of local governance, this project re-evaluates urban politics by deploying a theory of governance – deliberative democracy – that places discourse at the center of policy-making. Relying on the principles of deliberative democracy outlined by political theorists, this project surveys all superintendents of the 80 school districts throughout Los Angeles County, and tests the role of discourse between elites and non-elites in shaping the education policy attitudes of elites as well as the education policy outcomes of the school districts. This project finds that administrators, who engage in discourse with community members, are more likely to both favor and implement policies that foster inclusion.
