Imken, Mareike, 2015. Political mobilisation through public deliberation : a case study of three German environmental NGOs. Second cycle, A2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Urban and Rural Development



In this master thesis I am integrating ideas on the mobilisation of political engagement with the concept of deliberative democracy to enhance the practical applicability of public deliberation in contexts such as environmental advocacy campaigns. I explore the degree to which environmental campaigns of three German environmental NGOs use public deliberation in order to bring about a more active citizenship and produce political pressure for progressive policy change.
