Participation and Interaction in Foresight

Dialogue, Dissemination and Visions

Edited by Kristian Borch, Aalborg University, Denmark, Sandra Dingli, University of Malta and Michael Søgaard Jørgensen, Aalborg University, Denmark

This illuminating book combines theory and practice to analyse the experiences and impacts of foresight activities in various European countries. It includes case studies with a focus on different societal issues including national development, science and technology, and sustainable development.

‘The ten national foresight case studies presented, covering a wide-ranging set of themes (research, science and technology, education and training and the environment) and countries, help to underline the practical aspects of using dialogue and participation effectively in foresight exercises. The book is particularly useful in defining the concept of dialogue, debate, interaction and participation and in outlining a range of uses in different foresight contexts. This book constitutes an important contribution to the futures field and will prove an inspiration to those embarking on foresight exercises and similar open, participatory forward-looking processes.’
– Jennifer Cassingena Harper, Malta Council for Science and Technology
