Jane Mansbridge

The Art Of Listening


Jane Mansbridge, a leading voice in contemporary political thought, will talk with political scientists Josep Lluís Martí and Felipe Rey Salamanca about the current challenges for Democracy and the role of listening as an instrument to guarantee their future.

Mansbridge has dedicated her work to re-think the paradigms of contemporary political theory. She has influenced several generations of political scientists around the world with a profound reflection on models of citizen participation and representation. At a time when hate speeches and authoritarianism are calling democratic values into question, Mansbridge proposes to test new forms of deliberation that update democratic practice. How to introduce listening among the noise of the present? Where will democracy evolve in the coming years?

On the occasion of the publication of the book Democracia. Amistad y pugna (Gedisa, 2021), Mansbridge will give a lecture followed by a dialogue with Josep Lluís Martí, an expert in deliberative democracy and citizen participation, and Felipe Rey, responsible for the selection and translation of the texts in the book and a great expert in the work of the North American political theorist.
