Episode 10: Deliberative processes and democracy with Matthew Taylor



Matthew Taylor is the Chief Executive of RSA, an organisation whose people are thinking about new models for change, influencing policymakers, practitioners and the public to effect long-lasting change. In this podcast, recorded in 2019, Matthew talks about building mandates for change while ‘thinking like a system and acting like an entrepreneur’. The RSA has deliberative democracy as a core strategy to address anachronistic ways of governing, as well as winning legitimacy for political decisions. The conversation travels from Ancient Athens to contemporary UK and RSA’s strong advocacy for public deliberation.
