Economics serving society

(November 27) Workshop “The French Citizens’ Convention on Climate: A forerunner to future democracy?”

On November 27, 2020, PSE - Paris School of Economics is glad to organize an online workshop (Zoom) entitled “The French Citizens’ Convention on Climate: A forerunner to future democracy?” as part of the PSE collaborative project “Economie et Philosophie.”

A presentation will be made by researchers who have observed the whole process of this citizen assembly that started in October 2019. Then a panel discussion will be offered by specialists of deliberative democracy and political philosophy. Are such citizen participatory schemes a political sideshow or a key component of an ideal deliberative democracy?
