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.
Fifteen participants representing the municipal administration and political institutions, civil society and the media discussed the future orientations of the local welfare state in Geneva.
This report offers insights in individualised support services for residents of different areas, a project supporting work reintegration of people with mental health problems and housing support for vulnerable groups. Local innovation is assessed in relation to process, partners and stakeholders, and level of embededdness in the local welfare system.
