The Policy Project hosted a roundtable for senior officials with experts on co-production in government, Professor Tony Bovaird (Emeritus Professor at the University of Birmingham) and Dr Elke Loeffler (Chief Executive of the nonprofit Governance International).

The session was designed to understand what is meant by ‘co-production’ and how a co-production approach might be applied to various aspects of government activity – policy, regulation, service delivery – to build public value. The session looked at local and international co-production examples and examined the benefits of, and barriers to, coproduction. It raised questions about how a co-production approach could support government moving from a direct provider to a broker, facilitator, partner and commissioner of public services.
