Specializations, Methods and Tools
Sustained Dialogue is identified as finding causal relationships that hinder the process of deliberation to occur and to provide a space to produce the capacities necessary, to practice these capacities, and to create the relationships vital to political and economic democracy.
The SDI also coordinates the use of Sustained Dialogue through the Sustained Dialogue Campus Network, an organizational/networking tool developed to assist colleges with the implementation and support of SD Groups.
