Abstract

This collection of papers is concerned with issues of policy development, practice, implementation and performance. It represents a range of views about diverse subjects by individuals who are, for the most part, in the public eye and who have the capacity to influence the shape and the reality of public policy. Each has a story to tell, with insights that can only be drawn by those working at the ‘sharp end’ of policy.

Abstract

‘Consultation’ has become something of a mantra in contemporary governance. Governments well understand that policy occurs in a highly contestable environment in which there are multiple, and often competing interests. They well recognise the political imperative to ‘engage’ stakeholders in order to manage potential conflict and, hopefully, obtain acceptance for their policies and programs. As a result, politicians and public officials frequently emphasise the need for consultation as an essential element of the deliberative processes underpinning the development of policy or the implementation of programs and services. But, moving beyond the rhetoric of consultation and engagement, how well is it done? In this monograph, Professor Jenny Stewart maps out the principal approaches used by governments to consult with and engage affected communities of interest. Stewart critically assesses the available literature and draws directly upon the experiences of political actors, bureaucrats and community sector organisations in order to identify the ‘good, bad, and the ugly’ of engagement. Through a judicious use of selected case studies, Stewart distils the essential dilemmas and contradictions inherent in many consultation strategies and highlights their relative strengths and weaknesses. This monograph is a probing and dispassionate analysis of the rationales, methodologies and outcomes of consultation and engagement. It is not intended to be a ‘cookbook’ or a ‘how to’ manual for those consulting or the consulted. Nevertheless, there is much here for the policy practitioner, the researcher and members of those ‘communities of interest’ who might, one day, find themselves the target of engagement.

Abstract

Co-production and co-creation occur when citizens participate actively in
delivering and designing the services they receive. It has come increasingly
onto the agenda of policymakers, as interest in citizen participation has
more generally soared. Expectations are high and it is regarded as a possible
solution to the public sector’s decreased legitimacy and dwindling resources,
by accessing more of society’s capacities. In addition, it is seen as part of a
more general drive to reinvigorate voluntary participation and strengthen
social cohesion in an increasingly fragmented and individualized society.
Co-Production and Co-Creation: Engaging Citizens in Public Services
offers a systematic and comprehensive theoretical and empirical examination
of the concepts of co-production and co-creation and their application
in practice. It shows the latest state of knowledge on the topic and will
be of interest to students at an advanced level, academics and reflective
practitioners. It addresses the topics with regard to co-production and
co-creation and will be of interest to researchers, academics, policymakers,
and students in the fields of public administration, business administration,
economics, political science, public management, political science, service
management, sociology and voluntary sector studies.

Abstract

This collection of ‘critical reflections’ on Australian public policy offers a valuable contribution to public discussion of important political and policy issues facing our nation and society. These essays are important not only because of the reputation and position of the various contributors, but because they are incredibly ‘content rich’ and brimming with new ideas.
