I was delighted to be asked by the editors Rachael Lorna Johnstone & Anne Merrild Hansen to contribute a chapter to Regulation of Extractive Industries, to be published by Routledge in 2020.
The book addresses the need for effective public participation as part of the process of change brought about by extractive industries. My chapter, Achieving Excellence in Public Participation and Consultation, concerns consultation, as opposed to participation – that is, the process of gaining feedback on a specific proposal, as opposed to ongoing engagement. The chapter exemplifies best practice strategy and tactics for consultation, and new methods of engagement as used in the UK, Australia and Canada.
