I am writing a book for environmental activists and several chapters in it deal with pitfalls of consensus groups and partnerships which have emerged as a way American land management agencies get around laws by using local groups that contain local enviros to provide authority/rationale to do projects they would not be able to do if they obeyed the law. Local activists do not know how to deal with the many strategies that managers use in them.
The writings of C Haug are very useful and I will be referencing them. I am going into the history and evolution of public administration and game theory that underpin the problems of managerialism and neoliberalism that have created this “win-win” and anti Roberts Rules world which is supposed to be so advanced but has basically adopted the basic tool tyrants have used for a couple thousand years. So thanks for your useful perceptive insights.
