On the institutional side there are 4 criteria of relevance to socialisation. An institution where each of these has been met, can be regarded as one whose socialisation has been optimised. Where they have only partially been met, the institution has achieved a minimum or partial level of socialisation.
Staking out the framework for cooperation
The maintainer, the institution’s management, as well as the citizens and their communities together can assess and determine the areas of socialisation where cooperation or the sharing of responsibilities (authorisation/empowerment, transfer of competences) is possible, and this can be ‘enacted’ by suitable amendments to the deed of foundation, the rules of organisation and operation and all other relevant documents. The prerequisites for this include clarification of the legal framework on the part of the institution (how far the institution can go) and presentation, on the part of the stakeholders, of the available human, financial, relationship and technological resources and a sound concept for the given activity, task or project. The cooperation framework should be clearly regulated to make sure that it can withstand any change in the local power relationships.
