Int'l Journal of Public Participation Launches

Our good friend Michael Briand emailed me today announcing the inaugural issue of IAP2’s new International Journal of Public Participation (IJP2). The IJP2 is an online, multi-disciplinary forum for the exchange of information among researchers, practitioners, decision-makers, and citizens about public participation and its impact around the world. It has been created with the specific intention of bridging the arenas of research and practice within the field of public participation.

Look over the current issue, or go to the Journal’s home page at www.iap2.org/ijp2. I’m particularly excited to see the Journal connected to a Forum (bulletin board) where some real conversations can take place about the articles, and it looks like they’re planning to add a wiki as well.

Here’s the contents of the first issue:

    I am doing research on Public Participation in South Africa. I have found the article by Francois Theron (2007) et al ‘Participation According to IAP2 Principles: Opportunity or challenge for integrated development planning in South Africa?’ very useful.

    Unfortunately, the article does not have page numbers. Are you able to assist for citasion/reference purposes?
