This paper will seek to investigate which factors determine the involvement of non-profit
organizations in municipal project solutions.
Moreover, the project will identify the intentions behind Co-Production and investigate if a
Co-Production between Købehavns Kommune and Bydelsmødre would increase public value.
The concept of Co-production will be addressed through case work, and takes its departure from the
case of Co-Production between Københavns Kommue and Bydelsmødre. The concept will be
examined through a combination of both empirical and theoretical focus.
The empirical focus is represented by the right to access to documents; assessment reports from
Economist without Borders, Mhtconsults and statistic material from International Social Survey
Programme. Furthermore, Co-Production will be examined theoretically through Co-production,
The Third Sector and Hybrid Organizations, Principal- Agent theory and Public Value.
The empirical and theoretical aspects are applied as a frame of reference in which the analysis is
built upon a wonder of why Co-Production happens; which relation plays out between Københavns
Kommune and Bydelsmødre as well as how to measure the results of Co-Production.
Finally, based on the analysis, this project will conclude that non-profit organizations are likely to
get involved because of their hybridity and contribution to society. The same arguments were
therefore applicable in the case of Co-Production between Københavns Kommune and
Furthermore, non-profit organisations can benefit the municipality with knowledge and access to
communities in Copenhagen that would otherwise be unobtainable. The specific Co-Production
hereby reveals a positive outcome based on the four public values that this project hinges upon.
