Democratic Dialogue: a Handbook for Practitioners

Guidance and systemization of experiences , Available in Français Español

Democratic dialogue strengthens democratic institutions by providing citizens with the opportunity to voice their concerns, needs and interests – especially people who are normally disempowered from expressing themselves. Democratic Dialogue: A Handbook for Practitioners aims to provide decision-makers, dialogue promoters and practitioners with a practical guide on how to organize, facilitate and assess dialogue processes. It combines conceptual and practical knowledge, while providing practitioners with an extensive repertoire of relevant tools, experiences and approaches adapted to the issue at stake, the local context and the stakeholders involved. More than a compilation of techniques, the Handbook provides the reader with a ‘how to’ guide to organize a tailor-made dialogue from assessment to evaluation.
