This three-volume set looks at the evolution of ideas around Public Affairs, and how our understanding and conceptualisation of the topic has changed over the years. Through thematic exploration of the key conceptual and empirical articles to have come out of the field, public affairs is here understood as a discipline and professional practice, taking in: the organisation and structuring of the public affairs function; the characteristics and factors influencing the effectiveness of public affairs; the profile, characteristics and competencies of public affairs practitioners; the value of public affairs; what is understood about 'best practice' in the public affairs context, and its limitations; and the international perspective of public affairs.

Volume One: Introduction and definition Volume Two: Strategy Volume Three: Globalization
