The aim of this report is to develop a theoretical framework. Like the glossary, also this report is conceived as an “evolving document” which we can update and ameliorate throughout the duration of the project. Also, we tried to be short as well as to avoid specialised jargon and unnecessary details, with a view to making this report of practical use.

The report is articulated in two main parts. In the first section, we sketch the most important elements of the theoretical framework. In the second section, we derive from this framework some central research questions (which may be relevant also for the quantitative part of the research). Finally, in the second report “Methodological guidebook to study public services from an RDJ perspective, giving due place to capability for voice and capacity to aspire”, we translate these rather abstract analytical questions into more concrete terms, providing a questionnaire for the qualitative research.
