Paths of Public Innovation in the Global Age

Lessons from Scandinavia

Noralv Veggeland

Following the traditional Scandinavian welfare state model, the Nordic/Scandinavian model has recently become popular as a basic concept for shaping future approaches to European social politics.

In the context of this model, this engaging and comprehensive book presents a comparative discussion of the pursuit of innovation in the public sector.
