Joint Communique: IAP2 and Deliberative Democracy Consortium
November 15, 2010
IAP2 would like to announce that it is joining the Deliberative Democracy Consortium’s Journal of Public Deliberation.
For the past three years IAP2 has been publishing the International Journal for Public Participation, as a result of a series of opportunities IAP2 has now formed a partnership with the Journal of Public Deliberation.
This partnership will see more content from practitioners in the Journal for Public Deliberation, the appointment of Dr Lyn Carson as essay editor on behalf of IAP2 and a broad international community of practitioners and researchers networking on line to build debate and dialogues in the field.
IAP2 President Desley Renton said “this initiative builds on the foundations of both journals and will extend the discourse in the field with readers benefitting from firsthand experience of public participation practitioners”.
DDC Executive Director Matt Leighninger said "We are very excited about this new partnership. Working together on JPD will help our networks strengthen the critical links between research and practice, and better support democratic innovation throughout the world."

International Journal of Public Participation
The ‘IJP2’ is an on-line, multi-disciplinary forum for the exchange of information among researchers, practitioners, decision-makers, and citizens about public participation and its impact around the world. It has been created with the specific intention of bridging the arenas of research and practise within the field of public participation.
The express purpose of the IJP2 is ‘…to meet the needs of IAP2 members and others having an interest in improving the theory and practise of public participation’, which the IAP2 defines as ‘citizen participation in decision-making processes that affect the public in whole or in part’. Specifically, the IJP2 is intended to advance the IAP2’s mission in three ways:
- by serving as a vehicle for disseminating information about new developments in the field of public participation;
- by improving communication and mutual understanding between academics and practitioners; and
- by establishing a forum through which the IAP2 and its members can help shape the research agenda for improving the theory and practise of public participation
