Expert communication for stakeholder engagement

Dr Pamela Kinnear

Effective communication is at the heart of good public policy. It is the foundation for successfully engaging stakeholders to ensure that policies are better informed, realistic, citizen-centred, broadly supported and well implemented. This means that, in the world of public policy, high level communication skills are needed beyond the domain of official “Communications” units. Indeed, to be truly effective, communication must permeate the policy process, and offer more than the familiar practices of “public relations” or doing a better job of “explaining the facts”.
