    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    This article argues, against all previous deliberative theory, that self-interest ought to play a role in democratic deliberation. Among the conditions that legitimate the entry of self-interest into deliberation, the authors include both the regulative ideal of the absence of coercive power and the constraint of self-interest by fairness. They count as " deliberative" both integrative and "fully cooperative" forms of negotiation when interests conflict. Finally, they argue that deliberation can have a complementary relation to non-deliberative, aggregative democratic mechanisms.
