Abstract:

"Young and Everitt examine the ways in which advocacy groups contribute to or detract from Canadian democracy. They argue that group activity is an important form of political participation, often playing a crucial compensatory role for interests unrepresented or underrepresented in traditional political institutions. They also find, however, that groups with greater financial resources generally have better access to government decision makers, a trend accentuated recently by reductions in government funding. They conclude with recommendations for best practices in internal group organization and in efforts to influence public policy, as well as for ways that governments can engage in constructive consultation with groups." --Résumé de l'éditeur.
