CITIZEN PARTICIPATION STRATEGIES

CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF THE GENERAL GOAL OF CITIZEN PARTICIPATION REVEALS BASIC CONFLICTS BETWEEN PARTICIPATORY DEMOCRACY AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE. PLANNERS AND OTHER URBAN PROFESSIONALS HAVE ENCOUNTERED MANY PROBLEMS IN ATTEMPTING TO ENCOURAGE CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN COMMUNITY DECISION MAKING. SOME OF THE DILEMMAS CAN BE RESOLVED BY RECOGNIZING AND ADOPTING A STRATEGY OF PARTICIPATION SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO FIT THE ROLE AND RESOURCES OF THE PARTICULAR ORGANIZATION. FIVE TYPES OF STRATEGIES ARE IDENTIFIED: EDUCATION-THERAPY, BEHAVIORAL CHANGE, STAFF SUPPLEMENT, COOPTATION, AND COMMUNITY POWER. /AUTHOR/
