Editorial : stakeholder management in construction

By Brian Atkin and Martin Skitmore


Interest in stakeholders has grown considerably since Freeman’s (1984) seminal work Strategic Management: A Stakeholder Approach was published. Over 100 papers concerning what has become termed 'stakeholder theory' were published by 1995 alone (Donaldson and Preston 1995, p.65), with many more published since. Increasingly, stakeholders have been referred to in mainstream media and government communications, not just in academic texts (Friedman and Miles 2002)
