This report, by Ute Kelly of the University of Bradford, looks at the roles civil society associations in the UK can and do play in encouraging dialogue and deliberation; at the challenges they face in this work; and at how some of these challenges may be met. The findings of the report are particularly relevant to policy-makers and independent funders seeking to develop a more deliberative culture. The report is also particularly relevant for civil society associations who want to develop their own deliberative processes as a means to engage with their internal stakeholders and/or to interact with other groups in society
