Abstract

Creating Spaces of Engagement is an excellent transdisciplinary book addressing the potentialities of participatory and deliberative practices in creating new spaces for engaging diverse voices to advance policy justice. In this book, policy justice refers to 'a commitment to advancing public policy with intentionally anti-oppressive and social justice-oriented aims' (p.6). The role of spaces of engagement in policy justice is that they help to include diverse knowledge systems, forms of evidence, and most importantly, (especially marginalized) people into anti-oppressive policy-making processes to guide desirable policy outcomes.
