Abstract
Social Innovation (SI) is a highly relevant concept in the modern world. The concept responds to complex societal challenges and provides innovative solutions to unmet social needs. This study is drawing upon SI theories that emphasize importance of territory, mainly from socio-political perspective, for SI. Based on interviews with seven stakeholders working with SI in the public sector, NGOs, academia and supporting agencies, this study aims to illustrate what role played the region and territory in the case of region Skane and what aspects promoted SI. Furthermore, the thesis investigates intensity and structures of linkages between different actors and potential barriers for SI.
