Designing collaborative policy innovation: Lessons from a Danish municipality

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


Recent approaches to enhancing public innovation suffer from two shortcomings: They overemphasize competition as a driver of innovation and overlook the fact that public sector innovation involves policy innovation as well as service innovation. Drawing on governance research and innovation theory, the chapter investigates the extent to which and how collaboration between politicians and relevant stakeholders can spur the formulation, implementation and diffusion of new innovative policies. A case study of a process of collaborative policy innovation in a Danish municipality shows that collaborative policy arenas do contribute to policy innovation but also that the degree to which they do so depends on the institutional design of these arenas.
