Deliberative Capital: Recognition in Participatory Budgeting
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Government.
2016 (English)In: Critical Policy Studies, ISSN 1946-0171, E-ISSN 1946-018X, Vol. 10, no 4, 391-409 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article suggests (1) that deliberative democrats seeking to understand the conditions of inclusion in the public sphere should reconsider whether deliberative 'skills,' 'competence,' and 'capacity' are adequate to capture what effective participation requires, (2) that they would understand this differently, and better, by thinking in terms of deliberative capital, a concept more sensitive to how norms condition recognition of legitimate speakers, (3) that interpretive inquiries focused on practices in concrete deliberative fields can enrich our understanding of the conditions of inclusion. This article presents an account of participatory budgeting in Rosario, Argentina, based on observations and interviews with participants, and focuses on interpreting the meanings that participation has for citizen 'councilors'. It finds that deliberative practices produce alternative sources of recognition, on the basis of which members of the field of deliberation expect recognition also outside the field. The concept of deliberative capital brings to the fore the symbolic values of deliberative practices and provides an alternative view on how they matter for participation in the wider public sphere.
