|Title:||Community consultation in public policy: The case of the Murray-Darling Basin of Australia||Contributor(s):||Crase, Lin (author); Dollery, Brian Edward (author); Wallis, Joe (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1080/10361140500129990||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3124||Abstract:||Community consultation is widely employed in contemporary Australia as a means of improving the formulation and implementation of public policy. However, little is known about the optimal expenditure of effort required for any given consultation. This article develops a rational choice model of community consultation that seeks to encapsulate the major elements involved in optimising consultation effort. The framework is particularly useful for understanding and explaining why actual community consultation processes may be sub-optimal. The rational choice model is then applied to the 'Living Murray' debate over water resources in the Murray-Darling Basin of Australia.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Political Science, 40(2), p. 221-238||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||Abingdon (Oxon), UK||ISSN:||1036-1146||Field of Research (FOR):||140218 Urban and Regional Economics||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 183
