This blog was created to support the course Introduction to Public Dialogue -Theory and Practice- at Edinburgh Beltane and Queen Margaret University (Scotland), September 2009-February 2010.
The main purpose of the blog was to function as a resource for people interested in understanding and exploring dialogue from a communication’s perspective.
The blog is mantained by Oliver Escobar, Public Engagement Fellow of Edinburgh Beltane, and former member of the Dialogue Research Project at Queen Margaret University.
Oliver has just moved to the University of Edinburgh and this blog will be transformed soon into a different platform. Then its scope will be broadened to cover the overarching theme of citizen participation in policy making in Scotland.
