This chapter draws the book to its conclusion. It reviews the key findings and questions from the preceding chapters, and identifies uncertainties and unresolved questions about deliberative civic engagement. The chapter then looks to the future, by developing an agenda for the advancement of the practice and study of deliberative civic engagement. Three areas receive special attention in this agenda, including the rhetorical problem of deliberative advocacy, understanding the deliberative moment, and understanding designs and outcomes in context.
