Problem

Bureaucratic aggression

Nature:

Bureaucracies may use their powers and privileges, whether deliberately or inadvertently, in such a way as to favour policies and projects to the disadvantage of the regions, communities or interest groups on whom such projects have some impact, or for whose supposed benefit they have been conceived. They may be particularly successful in such attempts to extend their power and jurisdiction if they can avoid drawing attention to plans and proposals at the early stages when commitments have not yet been made. They also have a special advantage in that, in the event of protest, it is often their function to adjudicate between the views of protesters and their own proposals.
