Diana MacCallum

In this personal reflection, Diana MacCallum responds to a criticism often heard about the discourse of social innovation – that the term is empty, so general as to be unhelpful and easily appropriated to the cause of individualistic capitalism. She explains why and how social innovation can, rather, provide conceptual guidance for progressive forms of community development, and considers some of the ways in which social innovation is enacted in daily resistance to socially exclusive forces of neoliberal governance.

The International Handbook on Social Innovation

Collective Action, Social Learning and Transdisciplinary Research

Edited by Frank Moulaert, Diana MacCallum, Abid Mehmood and Abdelillah Hamdouch

The contributors provide an overview of theoretical perspectives, methodologies and instructive experiences from all continents, as well as implications for collective action and policy. They argue strongly for social innovation as a key to human development. The Handbook defines social innovation as innovation in social relations within both micro and macro spheres, with the purpose of satisfying unmet or new human needs across different layers of society. It connects social innovation to empowerment dynamics, thus giving a political character to social movements and bottom-up governance initiatives. Together these should lay the foundations for a fairer, more democratic society for all.
