Abstract and Keywords
New Public Service (NPS) is a proposal for public administration structured on a foundation of public interest, democratic ideals, citizenship and community participation. NPS offers principles and premises to conceive of and to implement public services based on citizen and governmental coproduction. This goal requires citizen participation in elaboration, design, implementation, and evaluation of public policies, all based on common interest. From an academic perspective, NPS requires an interdisciplinary view, combining knowledge from disciplines such as public administration, law, political and social sciences. In ‘New Public Service through Coproduction,’ we discuss the conceptual and practical implications of relating NPS and transdisciplinary knowledge. We have listed several fields of applications where coproduction and society participation have open room for studying the multidimensional relationship between NPS and coproduction.
