Across Europe, entrepreneurial forms of community action are widely promoted. Dutch citizens are setting up community enterprises (ces) to provide services for residents in deprived neighbourhoods. Their efforts to collaborate with governments and other actors can be qualified as forms of co-production to continue smallscale forms of neighbourhood regeneration. Through reviewing empirical research, the article aims to identify contemporary challenges of co-production between ces and other actors in the context of a ‘polder country’. It reveals contradictory institutional responses to ces which often encompass forms of counter-production. ces’ practices of skilful problem-solving in this context are reminiscent of the science of ‘muddling through’, coined by Charles Lindblom in 1959.
Keywords: Community enterprises; neighbourhood regeneration; co-production
