This volume of contributed chapters examines the theoretical concepts and their practical applications to various strategies of public participation in planning and policy-making in the urban as well as the resource and environmental management fields. The book begins with an overview of the problem and the way various countries, including Canada and the United States, have attempted to accommodate the growing demands for public participation, and discusses the dissemination of information and the interaction between members of the public and the various groups involved in planning and policy decisions. The book discusses the dilemmas facing those responsible for planning, policy-making, and policy-implementation and it offers suggestions for overcoming these problems. It also takes account of the political aspects and implications of more public involvement, the problem of dealing with conflicting interests and the emergence of community action groups. /TRRL/
