Collaborative Governance Case Database


International Comparisons based on the CGCD in the ECCO Project

Prof. dr. Eva Sorensen (Roskilde University) and prof. dr. Jacob Torfing (Roskilde University) will use the database format to systematically collect and compare data for their recently launched Coping strategies around co-creation in Norwegian municipalities (ECCO) project on coping strategies around co-creation in Norwegian municipalities.

This research project aims to unravel the expectations of Norwegian local governments to the introduction of new forms of co-creation, analyse how co-creation practices challenge established forms of governance based on Classical Public Administration and New Public Management, and identify and assess the coping strategies deployed by local public managers who are aiming to deal with the current transformations. Using the Collaborative Governance Case Database, the Norwegian findings will be compared to similar research in different national contexts
