The goal was to revitalize the mining industry, attract new investment and forge an alliance with major stakeholders such as government, environmental groups, First Nations, the mining industry, and labour. The book examines the political, cultural, and policy issues involved in developing a new consenus-based approach to resolving land and resource use disputes with particular focus on a national multi-stakeholder initiative in the mineral sector.The authors discuss the changing public policy environment, the growing use of alternative dispute resolution, the challenges posed by consensus-based processes in developing a common vision, and the implications of such processes for representative democracy.
