1.2 Why do deliberative mini-publics work with Helene Landemore
Helene Landemore is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Yale University. Her research interests include democratic theory and theories of justice.
Her book Democratic Reason: Politics, Collective Intelligence, and the Rule of the Many, was based on her PhD research in which she demonstrated that decisions taken by the many are more likely to be right than decisions taken by the few.
Helene is currently working on another book about post-representative democracy, a hopefully not too distant future, where democratic innovations are implemented and truly change the nature of the relationship between citizens and their representatives.
