I'm looking to network with those who've had experience with projects that have a public participation component.
Especially interesting in "lessons learned".

My focus has been on "anticipatory" or "front-end" governance deliberation, where citizens and officials are exploring a policy area and developing possible policy approaches. The group I work with comes from the perspective that much policy discussion is too late in the game, too binary in a partisan way, and too often has preemptive bias that rules out possible approaches based on a range of faulty assumptions.
I am interested in the notion of embedding sound deliberation and public participation in institutions and in the best practices that match the methods to the circumstances. I am of the belief that public sector managers have a professional obligation to understand participatory methods, even if they are not deliberative practitioners, so as to at least be informed supervisors and managers of interactions with the public.
Can you say a bit more, Dennis?
