Join us as we bring together leading practitioners and scholars for a frank discussion about the problems and possibilities of marketing participatory democratic innovations like citizens’ assemblies, participatory budgeting, or deliberative polling as a policy tool for government. Is there a tension between the ideal of spreading participatory innovations, and the need for organizations – whether private or non-profit – to actually sell these innovations to government? If so, what kinds of ethical dilemmas do organizations face in becoming “democracy entrepreneurs”?
