In this paper authors analyzed how changes appear in the way stakeholders frame and reframe the issues and their stake in a water area planning process. They took on a discursive perspective and focused on what happens in the interaction between stakeholders. Three aspects of change were observed: the differentiation of issue framing and stake of the process initiator, the internal differentiation of issue framing and stake of one interest party, and changes in the mode of interaction. With regard to the modes of interaction three different processes were distinguished: frame selling, frame filling and frame negotiation. It was concluded that the differentiation of issues and stakes is an important kind of change in decision-making processes and that multidirectional frame negotiation is helpful to achieve an integrated agreement.
