David Boyle: Co-Production: A Preventive Welfare System

6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Public services are becoming more and more expensive but often seem less and less effective. David Boyle explores debates in Britain about the ideas of co-production, which were developed in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s. He explains what happened when the National Health Service began using these processes and discusses whether co-production might be a key to welfare reform, providing services that tackle causes rather than dealing with symptoms.

Boyle is a fellow at the New Economics Foundation, a pioneering think tank in London, and has been at the heart of the effort to develop co-production in Britain as a critical element of public service reform.

This event is presented by the Parsons Desis Lab as part of the Public & Collaborative NYC Lecture Series.
