Susan Phillips and Michael Orsini, Mapping the Links: Citizen Involvement in the Policy Process. Phillips, who teaches at the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University, and her co-author, Michael Orsini, of the Department of Political Science, Glendon College, York University, take a systematic look at citizen involvement in policy making and ask why, in spite of favourable rhetoric, so little progress has been made.

In search of the answer, the authors explore the links between various dimensions of citizen involvement, stages of the policy process and the workings of three key groups Parliament, the public service, and non-government actors.
