Deconstructing Minorities in Deliberative Democracy

M Dian Hikmawan



It was a project from the inception of democracy to put all people on an equal footing with the rest of society. But in actuality, both in the state and in everyday political practice, segregation between citizens is an unavoidable fact of life that cannot be ignored. This research investigates how the political reality of soundness is viewed within the framework of political theory when it comes to the daily practice of democracy in the context of political theory. This research, which takes a phenomenological perspective, not only explains how the reality of civic politics is in the fight for accessibility and equality of citizens, but it also attempts to comprehend it as a collaborative endeavor to overcome the segregation that exists in everyday civic politics. This study also takes into account cultural discourse in the development of equal citizenship politics.
