The aim of my PhD research is to develop a comparative analysis of co-governance of risk in new partnership models for public service provision between local authorities and other service organisations, focusing on Scotland, Finland and Sweden. This international comparison will be of interest to all three countries and to the wider European context. The study will be the first of its kind in comparing risk management in innovative partnership models in the three countries and the goal is to produce policy recommendations for better public service provision.
