Making Public Participation Legal with Matt Leighninger


Please join UNH Law's Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy and the UNH Carsey School of Public Policy for the talk Making Public Participation Legal with Matt Leighninger, the Executive Director of the Deliberative Democracy Consortium (DDC) and author of The Next Form of Democracy: How Expert Rule is Giving Way to Shared Governance - and Why Politics Will Never Be the Same.

Making Public Participation Legal addresses how current legal governance systems stifle citizen participation in decision making processes.

Leighninger’s work points to model public participation laws in both local and state government that can be created to support more meaningful forms of community engagement, from deliberative dialogue to online media tools.
