Public Local Innovative Practices in Latin America: An Analysis of Internet Databases of 11 Awards for Social Innovations

Palomares Rodríguez, Erick Gonzalo
Abstract:
This article presents reflections concerning a study of 511 local innovative practices, recognized by 11 awards for social innovation in Latin America. It aims to offer a perspective regarding the kinds of solutions available in the databases of each award. This analysis attempts to answer the following question: What type of information would Latin American “alcaldes” find in these databases if they decided to replicate an innovation within their own municipality? The investigation is situated from the perspective of decision-makers as an intellectual exercise that recognizes, or questions, the type of information offered by these practices so that they can be replicated
