    Social innovation is a la mode. The significance that various mainstream strategy and policy documents accord to social innovation varies greatly. Nonetheless, one commonality stands out: they interpret it in economic, indeed often in narrowly market-economic, terms. In this chapter we challenge this approach by tituating SI in a broader societal logic and developing a methodology for SI research that is consistent with that logic.
