Social Partnerships In Distressed Neighbourhoods: The Danish Case

  • Anders Munk
Registered author(s):

    The purpose of this article is to investigate the impact of the Danish Urban Committee's programme of social partnerships in a European context and to examine how their governance dynamics can be understood. In attempting to address these questions, a research evaluation is based on surveys addressing the main partners: the local authority, the resident boards and the social initiators. The evaluation included a representative resident survey and a case study of twenty of the social activities are employed. Moreover, the paper draws on two secondary research evaluations in, respectively, four and eight neighbourhoods. The main findings indicate that the social activities of the social partnerships did improve solidarity, but did not increase resident participation. Like other Western European partnerships their merits vary and consensus is fragile. From an inter-organizational governance perspective the collaboration between the public sector and civil society was established in 100 neighbourhoods, but the cooperation can be described as hesitant.
