Abstract: Public participation is an increasingly important feature of environmental governance. Obligations upon government or project developers to "consult" appear in legislative arrangements and government policies of many countries. Environmental law and social justice scholars propose that consultation or community engagement (which we collectively term 'public participation') can adjust power imbalances, particularly for marginalised and Indigenous people, ensure better informed decisions, and improve communication between power-holders and citizens.
