Public Dialogue, Direct Governance and Global Complex Problem-Solving in Broken Political Systems

Wednesday, 17th January 2013

<p style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; margin-top: 5px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; color: #333333; font-size: 12px">When should governments involve their citizens in shaping public policy? Why do complex challenges, such as preparing for the impacts of climate change, require local participation? How can governments do a better job of integrating the interests of individuals when making decisions about competing priorities, such as whether to prefer free trade or environmental protection; national security or liberty?&nbsp;&nbsp; This session will address these and other questions arising from the complexities of involving civil society in decision-making and problem-solving processes traditionally reserved for government actors in complex local, national and international public policy issues. The panel will provide participants with guidance on recent research and practice in the field of collaborative governance before encouraging discussion through facilitated break-out groups and full-group debriefing, networking and practical proposals.</p><p style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; margin-top: 5px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; color: #333333; font-size: 12px">Kenneth Cloke, Center for Dispute Resolution and Mediators Beyond Borders, Santa Monica, CA<br />Anna Spain, University of Colorado Law School, Boulder, CO<br />Charles Crumpton, Crumpton &amp; Hansen, LLLC, and Accord 3.0, Honolulu, HI<br />Ian Boisvert, Blue Sky Mediation and Law, San Francisco, CA<br />Mary Jacksteit, Public Conversations Project, Watertown, MA<br />Peter Adler, Accord 3.0 Consultants, Honolulu, HI<br />John Sturrock, CORE Solutions Group, Edinburgh, Scotland</p><p style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; margin-top: 5px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; color: #333333; font-size: 12px">&nbsp;</p>Select the link to read more from this policy &nbsp;<span style="color: #333333; font-family: Arial; font-size: 12px; line-height: 16px" class="Apple-style-span"><p style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; margin-top: 5px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 0px; color: #333333; font-size: 12px">&nbsp;</p></span>
