New e-book: Local welfare systems and social innovation in European cities

A new e-book examined case studies from the ‘Welfare innovations at the local level in favour of cohesion’ (WILCO) project.

WILCO was a cross-national comparative study that examined how local welfare systems affected social inequalities or favoured social cohesion, as well as considering policy transfer to, and implementation in, other settings.

The project examined social innovations in 20 cities in ten European countries (including Dover and Birmingham in the United Kingdom).
