Abstract

Through the analysis of four case studies, this paper explores the relationship between stakeholder representatives and their constituencies of interest within the context of coastal partnerships in the United Kingdom. It was found that representatives who participate in partnerships have a variety of motivations, limited accountability and a poor record of information dissemination. It is concluded that there are very few formal assurances that representatives genuinely represent the views of their constituencies.
