Citizenship for the Love of the World
James Tully, Political Science, Law, Indigenous Governance and Philosophy, University of Victoria
Room 104, Law at Allard Hall, 1822 East Mall, UBC
March 07 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

James Tully examines two widely-practiced contemporary forms of engaged citizenship. The first is deliberative democracy as theorised by Amartya Sen: discursive participation in public spheres to influence representative governments. The second, associated with Elinor Ostrom, is the direct exercise of nonviolent political and economic powers by self-organising citizens in community-based organisations and global networks to realise public goods. Tully argues that these two practices of democratic citizenship can be seen as complementary.
