Book chapter

Stakeholder Participation and Dialogue in Foresight

P. 35-69.
Saritas O., Pace L. A., Stalpers S. I.

Foresight has become an ‘institutional’ activity as more emphasis has been given to the active participation of stakeholders to shape the future of society. As a key element of Foresight, participation improves the quality of Foresight exercises through the engagement of both scientific and non-scientific knowledge, and stakeholder values and preferences. The overall aim of this chapter is to strengthen the Foresight literature with novel concepts and ideas, which are rooted in the participation literature. This will assist Foresight researchers and practitioners understand various rationales of participation and to determine the type and extent of participation that is desirable for different types of Foresight exercises.
