The Inter-Council Network (ICN) of Provincial and Regional Councils for International Cooperation is pleased to welcome you to our bibliography of public engagement (PE) resources. In the ICN’s Public Engagement Position Paper, we defined PE, as it relates to our field, as “those activities and processes which enable individuals and organizations to traverse along a continuum from basic understanding of international development practices and the underlying principles directing those practices, through to deeper personal involvement and informed action on sustainable human development around the world” (ICN, 2011, p. 2).
The bibliography compiles a variety of PE resources developed by members of the academic community, civil society organizations, government, and international organizations, and is split into these same four categories based on their source. The intended audience of the bibliography is PE practitioners in Canada. All of the resources in the bibliography either specifically address PE on international development and global issues in Canada, or were included with the intention that they may serve to inspire Canadian PE practitioners working on these issues, based on their relevance to this work.
