Stakeholder Democracy: Represented Democracy in a Time of Fear (Routledge) In the context of sustainable development, this book describes how we are moving from representative to participatory democracy, and how we are now in a “stakeholder democracy”. It advocates for formally involving stakeholders in government decision making processes in order to create a sense of social ownership and partnership. Empowering representative democracy is crucial to peace, economic stability, global equality and environmental action.
