dc.description.abstractThis thesis explores current practices used by territorial local authorities in Aotearoa/New Zealand to involve citizens in deliberation. It has been written in response to the call from other researchers into local governance and consultation, for the development of more participatory processes and a more deliberative democracy. Drawing on research data, the thesis establishes a national baseline about the deliberative processes currently used by territorial local authorities and the issues they identify. These are further examined through four case studies. The concepts emerging are presented as a draft set of best practice guidelines, as a contribution to improving democratic processes in local government and indeed throughout the public sector.en_US
