Changing roles of community-sector peak bodies in a neo-liberal policy environment in Australia

Description

This report by Rose Melville focuses on the organisational demography of peak bodies, some of the challenges to their roles in policy making, democratic citizenship and representation.

A major theme to emerge in the study is the systematic delegitimisation of peaks as 'representative' bodies for sections of the community sector and their participation in policy-making processes. This longitudinal study has charted the way in which these changes are affecting democratic institutions and processes.
