Stakeholder Engagement


To give a structured understanding of engagement of government with stakeholders who are seeking to influence policy and administration.


This program covers stakeholder mapping, objectives, activities and effects, and how this is best managed by the parties. A structure for engagement with stakeholders is developed, its adaptation to different activities of government is shown and how this varies by jurisdiction is covered. Both general frameworks and actual cases are presented also. 


Upon completion, participants will have a substantially enhanced understanding of the handling of stakeholder activities, whether from a government or stakeholder perspective, e.g. business and community sector. 


This course is to be managed by ANU Professor Glenn Withers. Professor Withers was Chair of the National Population Council, Head of the Economic Planning Advisory Commission and CEO of University Australia. He has been an advisor to government, business, and community organisations and helped established the Productivity Commission, ANZSOG, Universities Australia and the Crawford School at the ANU.
