Stakeholder Management and Sustainable Development (Thesis: Ramnarine. 2016)

Ramnarine, A. (2016). Stakeholder management and sustainable development (thesis) York University.

Stakeholder management is a multidisciplinary process, and any approach is dependent on the stakeholder manager’s knowledge and understanding of the targeted population. This portfolio explores the best practices, as evidenced by my previous work and volunteer experiences, about stakeholder engagement within the field of sustainability in specific contexts – government, industry, and environmental non-governmental organizations. An in-depth comparative analysis of these cases is the method used to develop a framework to encompass the logical connection to sustainable development within the field of environment studies.

The framework summarizes the categories for the various objective and stakeholder types, the different social contexts, and the stakeholder approach types that can be used to direct the path towards engaging individuals or groups, in any given initiative or campaign, that supports sustainable development.
