Engaging the Community in Productive Public Conversations about Immigration
Author: RUTH ANN BRAMSON and MATT LEIGHNINGER
Published in IJED, Vol. 5 No. 4
Immigration is a difficult subject to talk about in public settings because it arouses strong feelings. This article reports on four case studies from the United States and Canada which involve democratic organizing efforts to bring citizens together for deliberative dialogue on this difficult subject in a way that builds mutual understanding and trust and involves participants in weighing options and making choices. The authors identify common themes from the cases and draw conclusions.
