Inequality and Deliberative Development: Revisiting Bolivia's Experience with the PRSP
AbstractThe deliberative-development approach to policy-making has gained popularity in both academic and policy circles. However, insufficient attention has been paid to the requirements necessary for deliberation to have beneficial effects on policy, some of which are detailed in this article, in particular the need for equality among deliberators. The article examines Bolivia's 2000 National Dialogue and demonstrates the effects of inequality - not between elites and non-elites, but between groups within civil society - on the legitimacy of the outcome. Its findings have important implications for the design of deliberative-development institutions. Copyright 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
