Abstract:Since the law of youth care has been changed drastically in 2015, municipalities have gained a lot more responsibility about the purchasing and execution of youth care products. Because municipalities were obliged to, or to gain scale benefits, municipalities have started working together in purchasing and executing these products. This allows them to achieve certain benefits. Because this is the first year the new law is in implementation, a lot of municipalities have engaged in a certain level of innovation, to better implement and purchase youth care. This innovation is often stimulated and across care providers. Municipalities can reward care providers in different ways when they help and think innovatively. This thesis reflects on the degree of innovation different municipalities, or municipal collaborations, entail and tests whether political preference is of influence in this degree of innovation municipalities pursue when executing youth care.
