Discussion paper: Beyond Nudge - How can behaviour change help us to do less with less?

Description
In this chapter we set out our belief that behaviour change alone is helpful but will not be sufficient because it focuses too heavily on individuals and not on the system and community as a whole. There is too much reliance on service users choosing to do something different when actually the need is for the individual and the community to think differently.

Discussion paper: We're all in this together: User and community co-production of public outcomes

Description
In this chapter, we set out what co‐production is, why it matters and its implications for public services, as part of the INLOGOV model. We argue that the movement towards co‐production can be conceptualized as a shift from 'public services FOR the public' towards 'public services BY the public', within the framework of a public sector which continues to represent the public interest, not simply the interests of 'consumers' of public services.
