Social License to Operate: Legitimacy by Another Name

My article — Social License to Operate: Legitimacy by Another Name? — was published in Canadian Public Administration today. Co-authored with Lianne M. Lefsrud (University of Alberta) and Stewart Fast (University of Ottawa), the article draws in part on research I originally prepared for a report by the Canadian Network for Energy Policy Research and Analysis entitled: “Energy Projects, Social License, Public Acceptance and Regulatory Systems in Canada: A White Paper.”
