Chapter Summary

This chapter introduces participation as communication, and focuses on the communicative structures of participatory discourse. It then argues that social structures in participatory discourse can be considered as social positions. The theoretical assumption of dynamic process of social positioning, in turn, calls for empirical analyses of participatory discourse. This is the reason why some findings of the Participation and the Dynamics of Social Positioning (PARADYS) project are brought in the chapter. The substantial empirical research in participatory discourse appearances across different European countries conducted within the PARADYS framework provided evidence of interesting difference in the dynamics of social positioning processes: There are exclusive as well as inclusive dynamics in participatory discourse with respect to the repertoire of typical social positions. The chapter illustrates this finding in some detail because it is of special interest when the intention is really to go beyond participation.

Keywords: communicative structures; PARADYS project; participatory discourse; social positions
