The RCBC 'Residential' was held last month for the Community of Scholars, the theme of which this year was co-production. We had a couple of interesting invited speakers – Laura Wilkes, from the Local Government Information Unit; Ajay Khandelwal from NESTA; and Elke Loeffler from Governance International – all of whom have recently worked on, written or generally contributed to debates (especially in England) on co-production.
Reflecting on those discussions, and what they might mean for them are three of the new intake of scholars. Julie Sutton reflects on what the course might mean for her research; Jan Burke and Helen Carey, both occupational therapists, reflect on what the implications of co-production might be for their profession and for themselves.
