The term stakeholder has been rather loosely used to include a wide range of individuals, groups and interests. Generally, stakeholders are taken to include all persons, groups or institutions with interests in a project or programme. Where a process involves formal representation and negotiation, claims to be a stakeholder must be backed by a substantial (and not academic) interest and by the delivery of a constituency, even if only a minority interest.
