In spring 2011, many reform advocates and research organizations will work together to hold a deliberative poll on constitutional reform, a major public event that would refocus the reform debate on comprehensive solutions that have real popular support. Jim Fishkin at Stanford University's Center for Deliberative Democracy, who developed the deliberative poll concept and model, will conduct the poll. The Bill Lane Center, also at Stanford, will play the unique role of providing research and analysis for this project. Our grant to the Center will provide funds for an objective analysis of reform ideas for the poll’s advisory group, commissioned research for the poll participants themselves, and an independent analysis of the poll’s lessons for reform.
