  Public Relations


Often public relations are described as the effort to influence the public or relevant parts of it by representing self-interests to reach certain goals. This view of PR is most commonly found, when acting within the economic sphere. On the other hand organizations like the PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) as well as several PR theorists and practitioners see themselves as social engineers, responsible for societal harmony. "Public relations help our complex, pluralistic society to reach decisions and function more effectively by contributing to mutual understanding among institutions. It serves to bring public and public policies into harmony...", the PRSA announced in one of their official statements on public relations.
