About this product
- Description'Social invation' can be simply defined as the new ideas and initiatives that make it possible to meet our society's challenges in areas such as the environment, education, employment, culture, health and ecomic development. It is currently becoming increasingly important as a central concept for social theories and politics. This edited volume brings together interdisciplinary contributions which examine the complex interrelation between invation and social problems, a link which has been surprisingly underexplored in academia and practice thus far. Social Invation: New Forms of Organisation in Kwledge-Based Societies examines the mutual interdependence of invation processes and social affairs. This interdependent relationship is characterised by a high degree of complexity which stems on the one hand from the true uncertain character of invation and on the other hand from the different time scales in both domains. The alliance between invation and social policy is highly relevant to the challenges which we are facing in the 21st century, such as resource scarcity, ageing societies and climate change. All of these issues demand substantial, continuous and sustainable structural change to maintain international competitiveness. Social change can only be understood by improving our kwledge about the impact of invation processes in their co-evolutionary alliance with social evolution. The purpose of this book is to increase awareness of social participation among civil society organisations, SMEs, governments and research institutions, in order to promote ecomic, political and social changes that enhance collective welfare. This volume offers a key starting point for those looking to further explore this important realm of social research.
