The purpose of this deliverable (D3.3) of the TRANSIT research project is to report on the development of a ‘second prototype’ of a middle-range theory of transformative social innovation. The version of the prototype presented here has been further developed during months 18-30 of the project, based on the
following four main areas of research activity:
The resultant TSI framework and proto-elements of a middle-range TSI theory provide a resource that is intended to be generative of further empirical research and theory development, rather than being a ‘fully formed’ theory at this stage. Thus it brings together different theoretical resources and ‘building blocks’ in ways that are not yet fully integrated but that rather frame further theory development, and similarly the propositions about TSI agency and dynamics presented, are not yet fully validated statements about TSI but rather represent a preliminary and tentative structuring of our insights about TSI, and imply the questions that need to be asked in further developing a theory of TSI. This deliverable (D3.3) represents a ‘work in progress’: it will be followed by one final iteration of the TSI theory (in year 4 of the project).
