Abstract and Keywords

Effective stakeholder management is crucial for megaproject development and delivery. This chapter provides an extensive review of the project stakeholder management literature, which is largely instrumental rather than descriptive or normative, and in particular fails to address the stakes of the natural environment and future generations in megaprojects. Drawing on developments in stakeholder management theory in strategic management research, the chapter proposes to broaden the agenda to a megaprojects and society perspective and to stress the political, economic, and ethical aspects in the context of an analysis which draws on institutional theory.

Keywords: literature, stakeholder, strategic management, society, institutional theory, political aspects, economic aspects, ethical aspects
