Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores the case for cultivating transnational deliberative processes within the global order. These processes can be associated with modes of communicative action that are reasoned, epistemic-reflective, and responsive to salient societal perspectives. The discussion is structured around three related but distinct “turns” within the emerging literature on transnational and global deliberation. The first addresses the paradigmatic features of transnational deliberation, the second looks at the more applied issue of how such a practice could be institutionalized, and the third considers the prospects for transnational deliberation as a complex system of interrelated parts. The argument of the chapter is that the “systemic turn” offers the most promising avenue for conceptualizing and realizing transnational and global deliberation, as it resists the temptation to place too much emphasis on a particular institution, forum or process.

Keywords: deliberative systems, experimentalism, global order, mini-publics, public sphere
