Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What is a stakeholder? If you're a farmer are you a stakeholder?

I think that is a word that needs deconstruction. Maybe the whole EU public consultation site Your Voice needs deconstruction.

I'm ruminating on the same questions you are.

Out of curiosity, I went to the contribution page for one of the stakeholder consultations and saw the online form you have to fill in. You have to give the name of an "organization". I suspect "European Tribune" is probably not an "organization" in their sense. A farmer runs a small business and would be a stakeholder organization, I think. In some document somewhere, this must be defined, but I haven't found it yet and have no more time today.

Your Voice is apparently (they say it themselves) new and wants feedback.

Let's hack it to pieces and give them some constructive feedback.
