Stakeholder dialogue

Stakeholder dialogue is a process where an institution initiates dialogue with persons or organisations that have a stake in its activities. It is about communicating with stakeholders in a way that takes serious account of their views. It does not mean involving them in every decision, or that every stakeholder request will be met. It means that stakeholder input should be thoughtfully considered.

A key element of stakeholder dialogue is the focus on 'process' rather than on policy substance.
