  • The Rise before the Stall: Lessons for Hybrid Governance from Social Outcomes Contracts

    Dr. Alec Fraser, King's College, London, UK

    Monday, June 24, 2024
    12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.
    307 Tier Building and online via Zoom

    Join the Zoom (Passcode: 254418)

    Dr. Fraser will be introduced by Dr. Jesse Hajer (Economics and Labour Studies) who will situate and relate Dr. Fraser’s work to the Manitoba context.

    Sponsored by:

    • UM Department of Economics
    • Joint UM/UW Masters in Public Administration
    • Duff Roblin Professor of Government
    • Institute of Public Administration Canada MB
  • This talk examines the development and diffusion of Social Outcomes Contracts (SOCs) since 2010, contextualized within wider theoretical debates about hybrid governance and public management reforms. We scrutinize early proponent discourse on SOCs as a policy design tool that promised to leverage optimal aspects of New Public Management (NPM) and New Public Governance (NPG) regimes, including increased accountability and fairness through competitive public private contracts, multilateral collaboration and cooperation, outcomes focused measurement, and a learning approach to implementation and performance management . We also evaluate the weight of subsequent empirical research on SOCs as a policy implementation tool. Join us to delve into what our analysis concluded and our research offers as an explanation.
