Fostering new ideas for social inclusion and accountable responsive governance: a think-piece for the Making All Voices Count programme

Authors: Edwards, D.
Publication date: 2014

The Making All Voices Count programme aims to foster and support new ideas to improve governance and achieve greater social justice. This think-piece examines how programmes such as Making All Voices Count might utilise innovation as a strategy for addressing complex governance problems. 

The author first explores what type of innovation Making All Voices Count should be supporting, before exploring who and how innovators innovate, and the roles different champions play in innovation systems. The author then examines the importance of openness, learning and iteration, before drawing out implications for the field of transparency and accountability, the Making All Voices Count programme, and Making All Voices Count’s Research and Evidence component.
