Editors: Janet McIntyre-Mills (Flinders Inst. of Public Policy and Management, Flinders Univ., South Australia)
Book Description:
This new book addresses the question: How can democracy and governance be made more accountable to diverse groups of people within nested regions? How can we address risks across spatial and conceptual boundaries? Emotions are central to policy making. Making connections is the basis for consciousness and mindfulness. The more connections we can make, the better our thinking, our policy processes and our governance outcomes will be. We need to think about our emotions and not to deny them. Emotions, values, and perceptions are central to our humanity. They underpin the so called 'enemies within', namely 'religion, morality, aesthetics and politics'. Enabling more decision making at the local level has both advantages and disadvantages. The research challenge is to find a democracy and governance process to maximize the advantages and minimize the disadvantages. This requires building organizational capacity to address accountability and the management of risk to enable people to work with diverse perceptions, interests, and issues.
