Policy Press

This chapter emphasises the importance of public participation as a strategy which invites citizens to collaborate with state and non-state actors in shaping public policy or taking decisions on public services. It traces the ways in which the public domain of participation and deliberation is produced and reproduced, opening up questions of public and private to critical scrutiny. It also traces the contradictory implications of the new technologies of power associated with participation and collaboration.

Keywords:   participative governance, public sphere, citizens, public policy, public services, new technologies
