This chapter aims to set out and develop an understanding of citizen deliberation that is more in tune with the way in which citizens think, which works with issues of power, and which accommodates contextual features in a nuanced way. It summarises key findings from the observation of deliberation in meetings of the Citizens Council of the British National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and proposes an alternative theoretical framework for deliberation. The chapter argues for an expanded understanding of deliberation as practice and a move away from the particular forms of political-science theorising that have so far dominated debates for citizen participation.

Keywords:   citizen deliberation, Citizens Council, NICE, meetings, political science, citizen participation
