Abstract

This paper presents research on the co-production of public services. It reviews an important conceptual development for understanding the co-production of public services which was introduced in an earlier paper and uses it to investigate the co- production of public services for asylum seekers living in Glasgow. The marginal position of asylum seekers makes them a disenfranchised group who do not share the rights bestowed on the indigenous population at birth, such as citizenship. The paper therefore attempts to answer two important questions: Can asylum seekers, as non- citizens, co-produce the public services they receive (that is, are citizenship and co- production inextricably linked?); and what are the implications of this process for social inclusion and citizenship?
