Making Policy Reform Work is a world-first comparative study of social procurement policy implementation in Victoria and Scotland.
Social procurement, or the use of buying power to create social value, is being increasingly used as a policy lever by governments to generate a more inclusive economy. This Australian Research Council Discovery project is undertaking a comparative analysis of social procurement policy implementation in Victoria and Scotland in order to shed light on the implementation challenges of these reforms and the implications for success.
The project applies decolonising methodological principles in a novel setting to both understand and support the processes of reciprocity and deep listening needed to make policy reforms involving diverse actors work.
