The future of democracy is becoming more and more dependent on governments' ability to innovate. The past offers few guidelines for solving current problems related to fiscal and monetary policy, trade union movements, public education, and the environment. At the same time, inaction invites disaster. Can leaders learn to innovate? Taking as their premise the idea that leaders can at least improve their 'learning capacity,' eminent scholars from around the world present detailed comparisons of the innovation process in various countries. At levels ranging from individuals to international organizations, and on specific issues, including agriculture, education, technology, and law, Innovation in the Public Sector offers an array of pragmatic analyses that suggest what works best in open, pluralist societies. This innovative survival guide commands the attention of policy-makers and political scientists alike.
