Resumé

Co-Design’s increasing engagement with the public realm is closelyrelated to the widespread turn towards ‘the social’ in design anddesign research. However, there is a lack of understanding of howthe notion of the social in social design differs from social innovationand social entrepreneurship. This paper provides an inter-disciplinaryexamination of research literature with the purpose of positioningsocial design more firmly in its difference from these other approaches.One of the tangible results is an analytical framework that enablesdesign researchers to grasp what is unique to social design andwherein lies the value for the public realm. By developing a set ofdefining criteria such as aim, modus operandi, social value, locus ofdesign and innovation, and the scale of effects, the paper offers a finegraineddisentangling of the social in social design.
