Over 40 years of educating about law, democracy, and human rights
Deliberating in a Democracy (DID) is an international program that teaches students how to deliberate controversial public issues.
The program challenges students in U.S. classrooms to tackle current civic issues with partner schools in Latin America, Central/Eastern Europe, and North/Western Asia. Through classroom deliberations and videoconferences, students learn more about critical societal concerns through an international dialogue.
DID ran from 2004-2010, during which more 400 teachers engaged more than 20,000 high school students in authentic civic deliberations. Most of the schools who participated continue to use deliberations in the classroom.
In 2011, the program became Deliberating in a Democracy in the Americas and shifted its geographic focus to Latin America.
