For this Discussion, you will assess the roles of culture and diversity in stakeholders and other constituents participating in the policymaking process. Identify three (3) peer-reviewed academic journal articles that explore the topic of diversity and citizen participation in the policymaking process. In your discussion, include the journal articles and why you chose them and respond to the following questions with your support:
· Does more participation by stakeholders and constituents improve the policymaking process?
· How can one assure that a diverse array of individual stakeholder and constituent interests are considered and represented when creating public policies?
· How can public administrators use this knowledge in order to evaluate the social and ethical implications of decisions made in the public interests?
