The concept of social innovation has gained prominence in the international policy making community throughout the last ten years, particularly in the European Union. It is highly ambiguous with blurring boundaries. It includes fields as diverse as fair trade, distance learning, hospices, urban farming, waste reduction and restorative justice. The articles in this special issue deal with social innovation in a territorial development perspective. They ask the question of potentials and limits of social innovations to foster social development, with special focus on the potential contribution of social innovations to improve social policies.
