Abstract [en]

(a) To develop and refine the basic ideas of the theory of deliberative democracy in relation to education as a public sphere, (b) to analyse the preconditions within educational policy for schools and other educational institutions to constitute deliberative democratic environments, (c) to analyse the possibilities and limits as regards changing schools and the internal work of educational institutions in the direction of deliberative democracy, (d) to analyse the relationship between learning and deliberative communication within different school subjects and to test deliberative communication as a didactic idea.

 

It is difficult and perhaps also inappropriate to (try to) distinguish between the scientific and the practice field with regard to the problem that is the focus of this project, education as (deliberative) communication, with an analysis of the classroom as a potential weak public sphere. However, starting from the question whether the classroom can serve as a potential weak public (cf. Fraser 1992/2003), the project has learnt that the classroom seems to be underutilized in this respect, while at the same time there is an obvious boom in educational research (of which this project forms a part) advocating education and learning as communication. The project’s interest in deliberative communication can be seen as one branch of the communication tree that has been developed in close relation to the question of the constitution of democratic values in Swedish schools. The concept of deliberation also has a specific relationship to a certain view of democracy, namely deliberative democracy. In the context of the project, deliberative communication is understood as and has its starting point in a view of communication in which different opinions and values can be brought face to face, with “an endeavour to ensure that each individual takes a stand by listening, deliberating, seeking arguments and evaluating, while at the same time there is a collective effort to find values and norms that everyone can agree upon” (National Agency for Education, Dnr 2000:1613, p. 6, my tr.).
