Quotation Oosterlynck, Stijn, Novy, Andreas, Kazepov, Yuri, Hrsg. 2020. Local Social Innovation to Combat Poverty and Exclusion - A Critical Appraisal. Bristol, UK: Policy Press.




Based on more than 30 case studies in eight different countries, this book explores the governance dynamics of local social innovations in the field of poverty reduction. The diverse team of contributors reflects on the trajectory of social innovation in European governance. They illustrate how different governance dynamics and welfare mixes enable or hinder poverty reduction strategies and analyse how such dynamics involve a diversity of actors, instruments and resources at different spatial scales. The contributions are based on research motivated by the standstill in the fight against poverty in Europe and the anxiety that conventional macro-social policies are insufficient to deal with the current challenges.
