Social License and Public Acceptance in Canada

Today, the Canadian Network for Energy Policy Research and Analysis published its report: “Energy Projects, Social Licence, Public Acceptance and Regulatory Systems in Canada: A White Paper.” This white paper reports on the results of a year-long interdisciplinary collaboration aimed at identifying and summarizing extant research regarding social license and related concepts, with a particular emphasis on understanding its implications for public acceptance of energy projects in Canada, and their related regulatory processes.

The report is available through SSRN and ResearchGate.
