Fostering New Ideas for Social Inclusion and Accountable, Responsive Governance: a Think-Piece for the Making All Voices Count Programme

Published on 1 June 2014

This short think piece draws from a desk review of experience in using innovation to increase social inclusion, and an exchange of ideas in an e-dialogue between practitioners and scholars in January 2014.

It draws on research and experiential evidence, and borrows its framing and title from the concept of ‘maker culture’. It explores who innovators are and how they innovate, and the roles different champions play in innovation systems. It includes five one-page summaries of key research in this field.
