A couple of Resources on Participation

In response to some recent requests, I am posting here a couple of resources for thinking about participation. One is the article by myself, Patrick Heller, and Marcelo K. Silva, called Making Spaces for Civil Society.. Also, a course on participatory democracy and community development I taught last Spring at MIT. There’s also a nascent wiki on some of those themes that we never finished: www.urban-democracy.wikispaces.com.
