Title: The How, Why, and What of Measuring Political Systems' Deliberativeness
Speaker: Dannica Fleuß
Abstract: Measuring democratic deliberation is necessary for a valid measurement of democratic quality or legitimacy. Yet, it poses serious theoretical-conceptual and methodological challenges. The most serious problem in the context of research on democratic performance is the need for a theoretical and methodological approach for "upscaling" the measurement of deliberation from the micro and meso level to the macro level. I propose a systemic framework for this purpose. Building on this framework, I offer a modular approach and outline strategies for conceptualization, measurement, and aggregation which can be adjusted to make the measurement of democratic deliberation suitable for various research goals and purposes. I refer to exemplary findings from ongoing and recent research projects to illustrate the individual steps or 'modules'.
