Learning from Experience in Municipal Environmental Supervision: A study of twenty-six Swedish supervion cases
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Twenty-six supervision cases from eleven Swedish municipal Environment and Health Administrations were examined. This was made in order to determine how and to what extent experience feedback and other exchange of experiences take place among municipal environment authorities and to identify unfulfilled demands of such communication. There was a remarkable lack of demand for classical experience feedback in which information from technological and organizational failures was used to avoid a repetition of the same type of failure. Instead, inspectors expressed a need for exchanges from other agencies dealing with similar issues and a need for systematic feedback from public prosecutors of cases that have been handed over to them.
