The objective of this series of reports is to study the interplay of innovations with local welfare systems, to identify critical factors and think about appropriate ways of up-scaling innovations.
The decentralised political structure of Spain, the specific Barcelona government and the dynamics of local civil society make the ingredients for active social welfare innovation in Barcelona. This report is part of a series describing innovative projects in 20 cities across Europe, assessing innovation in relation to process, stakeholders, and level of embededdness in the local welfare system.
The seminar reflected on the challenges of social innovation and addressed how to learn about the innovative projects in other cities Europe.
The goal of this WILCO Stakeholders’ Meeting was to offer analysis of social innovation in Barcelona and Pamplona.
A total of 20 European cities have been studied in depth within the WILCO framework. This report series represents the first attempt at understanding how the cities have developed over the last decades and how changes have contributed to the current landscape in the areas of housing, employment, family and immigration.
