Effective stakeholder management is crucial for megaproject development and delivery, so we provide an extensive review of the project stakeholder management literature. We find that the literature is largely instrumental, rather than descriptive or normative. In particular, it 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, we propose 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.
