The premise of this project was that consultation is a legitimate part of modern natural resource managment but we need further understanding of how the communication in a consultation actually works in order to assess the conditions are required where they really contribute to the management in a relevant way, and how consultations should be designed to fulfill realistic goals and at the same time interest both organisers and participants. The objective of this project was to develop this foundation.
