The PDD Group was awarded the PSA Specialist Group of the year Prize 2020!

Here’s the full citation from the PSA judges

“The Participatory and Deliberative Democracy (PDD) group is a well-established specialist group of the PSA that is, evidently, going from strength to strength. The judges were deeply impressed by the number, range and high quality of this group’s events and activities during 2020 and how they adapted to the new circumstances using innovative and creative approaches to maximise members’ engagement, particularly ECR. The judges were particularly struck by the efforts of PDD to work with other like-minded groups within ECPR and APSA, culminated in the organisation of an impressive seminar series (Democracy Rebooted); and also by the considerable, successful work the group has done to engage with the world of practice and with communities outside academia – showing the real-world impact and application of democratic innovations.”
