Governments worldwide struggle to remove policy deadlocks and enact much needed reforms in organizational structure and public services. In this book, Jacob Tor­fing explores collaborative innovation as a way for public and private stakeholders to break the impasse.

Tor­fing draws on his own pioneering work in Europe as well as examples from the United States and Australia to construct a cross-disciplinary framework for studying collaborative innovation. The result is a theoretically and empirically informed book that carefully demonstrates how multi-actor collaboration can enhance public innovation in the face of ­ fiscal constraint, the proliferation of wicked problems, and the presence of unsatis­fied social needs.
