BOOK | Rescuing Policy: The Case for Public Engagement

Community Engagement, Books

This e-book argues that public engagement is the right response to the rise of the consumer model of politics and the crisis that it has created in public policy. It will be of interest to students of government and governance from across the policy community. It clearly articulates a framework for collaborative governance, offering a vision for how governments can move forward more confidently in partnership with the broader community.
