Citizens as partners : information, consultation and public participation in policy-making. / OECD

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France : OECD Publishing, 2001Description: 267 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Website Summary: Governments are in a crisis of identity, some would say legitimacy, with election turnouts low in many OECD countries and a widespread feeling of disenchantment among citizens with government and the democratic process. Can governments do something to change this? Certainly, doing nothing is not an answer. What every country needs is more transparency, more consultation and more participation. This book is a unique source of comparative information on this challenging subject. It examines a wide range of country experiences, offers examples of good practice, highlights innovative approaches and identifies promising tools (including new information technologies). A set of ten guiding principles for engaging citizens in policy-making is proposed.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Publisher: Berlin CoNet 2011Description: PDF, [4.93 MB].Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Many neighbourhoods in European cities face growing social exclusion, segregation and associated urban decline.
