This chapter examines the overt attempts by dominant groups to control the agenda and subtle effects of hegemonic discourse at the meetings of the Citizens Council of the British National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). It describes the ways by which the voices of minority-ethnic-group members of the Council were included in it and the discursive styles deployed by members of the Council to deal with the new context they found themselves in. The chapter also discusses the issues of citizen identity and a new conceptualisation of deliberation as a dialogic discursive practice.

Keywords:   Citizens Council, NICE, dominant groups, hegemonic discourse, minority ethnic group, discursive styles
