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.

Felix Dodds is an Adjunct Professor at the University of North Carolina. He was the co-director of the 2014 and 2018 Nexus Conference on Water, Food, Energy and Climate and Executive Director of Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future. He chaired the United Nations DPI 64th NGO conference and co-chaired the UN Commission on Sustainable Development NGO Steering Committee. He has written or edited 18 books including Negotiating the Sustainable Development Goals.
