About this book

Introduction

As political leaders acknowledge the limits of their power they increasingly integrate constructive input from inside and outside government into their decision-making. A Ministry or Commission of Public Input is necessary to collect, process and communicate input more effectively and politicians need to work with the public to identify solutions.

Reviews

Winner of the 2015 IAP2 Australasia Research Award

'This is a very timely and important contribution to the increasingly urgent debate regarding the revitalisation of democracy. The author demonstrates the all-too-rare academic leadership that not only provides a powerful bridge between theory and practice but also navigates the frustrating divides that mysteriously persist between the fields of political theory, public administration, political leadership and political marketing. Jennifer Lees-Marshment gets my vote to become the world's first Minister of Public Input!'

Professor Brad Jackson, Head of School of Government, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
