(p.147) Eight Spaces of policy making: deliberating with care
Care in everyday life

Marian Barnes

Policy Press

In this chapter Tronto's moral principles of care are applied: attentiveness, responsibility, competence, responsiveness and trust, to deliberative processes through which those subject to public policies might play a part in shaping them. The author argues the need to go ‘beyond argument’ and to encompass the embodied and emotional dimensions of experiences in the policy process. She suggests what ‘care full deliberation’ might look like and thus extend an understanding of care ethics to the public interactions between those who make policy and those whose everyday lives are impacted by them. She argues that this also emphasises the epistemological dimension of care.
