The public interest, which is sometimes quoted in professional codes of public relations practice and conduct, is a cliché and a myth; in fact, the civil society in which we live is an amalgam of competing interests. It is within this contested arena that public affairs practitioners operate to advocate for particular institutional views and resource allocations in the battle for favourable policy outcomes. So, this unit examines the ways in which public relations and communication professionals working within third sector, business sector, and government sector organisations seek to communicate via lobbying and campaigning in order influence public opinion and government policy.
