Deliberative democracy requires a new type of deliberative
citizenship and deliberative governance. However, there has been
little examination of the connection between deliberative citizenship
and deliberative governance. Moreover, despite a growing literature
that has examined a diversity of concepts of Chinese citizenship,
the newly emerging deliberative citizenship has not been studied.
This paper attempts to fill these two gaps by studying the role of
deliberative citizenship in deliberative governance practice. Drawing
on an experiment this author organized in 2010, this article examines
the question of whether deliberative citizenship can be harnessed
to solve a particular social problem and how deliberative forums
can become a new form of deliberative governance mechanism. It
examines what kind of conditions help or hinder the development of
deliberative citizenship and deliberative governance, and identifies
the limitations of local deliberative democracy in China.
