This inventory of resources was developed in response to interest in deliberative processes expressed by public health actors, many of whom are interested in the role deliberative processes can play in support of efforts to promote healthy public policy.
This inventory is intended to launch inquiry into the subject of deliberative processes as applied to public policy and thus does not claim to be exhaustive. It is based on a review of the literature on this subject carried out by the National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) during Summer 2009. An update of this document was conducted in August 2011. It reflects the information available at the time the review was carried out.
For those interested in deliberative processes, this inventory contains information aimed at:
- Facilitating access to existing resources;
- Describing the main deliberative trends;
- Examining the deliberative mechanisms that seem most promising.
