Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Participatory Budgeting is one of the fastest-growing municipal democratic reforms in the world. It began in Brazil in the late 1980s and has since spread to cities across the globe. But what is Participatory Budgeting, how does it work, and how is it different from other forms of governing? What can we learn from other cities as we begin to experiment with Participatory Budgeting in the Portland Metro-Region?

On this episode of Locus Focus we learn more about Participatory Budgeting from guests Jim Labbe, a Portland community organizer currently teamed up with Healthy Democracy and the Rosewood Initiative, and Brian Wampler, a professor of political science at Boise State Universitys School of Public Service. They are both involved in organizing and hosting a one-day policy forum on April 14 entitled Bringing Participatory Budgeting to the Portland Region.

Brian Wampler is a professor of political science at Boise State Universitys School of Public Service. His research and teaching focuses on Brazil and Latin America, having lived and conducted research in Brazil, Mexico, and Spain.
