In work package 11, we aim to assess local socially innovative policies and practices that address new and growing inequalities. In order to assess the extent to which socially innovative policies and actions help those (social groups of) European citizens that are identified as poor and socially excluded, special attention will be paid to the governance dimensions of successful socially innovative policies and actions.
More specifically, we will address the governance challenges that are rooted in the complex interrelationships between the typical actors (community organisations, local states, NGOs and social movements, social economy firms, etc.), instruments and goals of local forms of social innovation and the redistributive policies of the national welfare state.
In this context, about 30 case studies are carried out in order to assess the governance challenges faced by local actions of social innovation directed at people confronted with poverty and social exclusion.
On these pages, we publish the case studies as soon as they become available.
