Participatory Democracy with Systems Thinking

Brian Dowling

This systems 'story' model is an expansion of Insightmaker model 11923# A 'Better World' thru Systems Thinking. It sets forth an argument that those wishing to promote Participatory Democracy as a viable means of community decision making would be well served incorporating systems thinking into their community governance processes. It does so by demonstrating that some of the principles of participatory democracy not only fit well with a successful program of systems thinking but could also be mutually beneficial.
