Atlas of Social Innovation

The book series Atlas of Social Innovation, edited by Jürgen Howaldt, Christoph Kaletka, Antonius Schröder and Marthe Zirngiebl, portrays experiences, theoretical approaches and empirical findings in the field of social innovation, providing different regional examples and disciplinary approaches. Both the first volume „Atlas of Social Innovation – Practices for a Better Future“ published in 2018, and the follow-up volume „Atlas of Social Innovation – 2nd Volume: A World of New Practices“, published in 2019, bring together leading experts in the field. With a total of 105 short and concise articles, the two volumes offer practitioners, policy-makers, and scholars insights into current developments in the research field and links to other research traditions. The two books present social innovation in different regions of the world and in different policy fields, and provide a unique portrait of experiences, theoretical considerations, and lessons learned about social innovation. In doing so, they transcend the boundaries of individual regions as well as disciplines.
