What is Public Affairs?

“Public affairs” describes the activities to generate and coordinate influence and engagement across government, business, media, and society.

Public affairs professionals communicate an organization’s reasoning as to why public policy and its application should be amended. Through a combination of government relations, strategic communications, and risk management, practitioners facilitate the development of better and more modern legislation.
