Co-Production in public organizations
Cumulative dissertation on "Improving public services through citizen co-production"
Public organizations increasingly co-produce public services with their users. The co-production of public services is generally understood as the involvement of citizens and other actors external to the public administration in the design, production, and provision of public services [1]. Co-production is often seen as a driver for: innovation creation to increase public value in the public sector [2], increased legitimacy, more efficiency and effectiveness of government, and more accountability [3].
We elaborate how different dimensions of co-production (Co-commissioning, Co-design, Co-delivery, and Co-assessment/evaluation) [4] can improve public services and what challenges co-production poses to public organizations. For this purpose, we will study co-production through different projects and angles, such as digital inequalities in citizen-sourcing platforms or the interplay between agile organizational practices and co-production.
