From the introduction:
Co-design refers to a philosophical approach and evolving set of methodologies for involving people in the design of the services, strategies, environments, policies, processes, – that impact them.
This review gathers together readily available local scholarship and literature about co-design in Aotearoa New Zealand up to September 2019. This document is aimed at the practitioners as much as academics and is more a snapshot than a formal academic literature review. Its aim is to:
- create a resource to support groups and individuals working in, or commissioning, co-design
- make visible for those practising or commissioning co-design in Aotearoa New Zealand the current landscape of formal scholarship and research in this space
- provide a benchmark of current research applying to, or about, co-design, highlighting areas for future scholarship and collaboration. As more literature is identified it can be added to this initial review.
