Kommunalpolitikere som ledere af politikinnovation

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Several reasons for strengthening the councilors’ political leadership are put forward and it is claimed that leading processes of local policy innovation is an important route to promoting the councilors in the local leadership game. Some municipalities try to facilitate this process by establishing so-called §17, 4 committees, and a first evaluation of the use of these committees in Danish municipalities is offered. The conclusion is that even though these committees where introduced are evaluated in positive terms, many municipalities are still reluctant to use them as a tool in policy innovation processes.
