We will start this chapter by introducing the notion of innovation in the public sector and provide a brief overview on how this term has evolved, ultimately proposing four categories to classify public innovation (products, processes, governance and conceptual). We will then focus on innovation in justice as a new approach involving the different agencies and individuals that partake in and use justice-related services. We will use public innovation categories to classify different types of innovation in the justice sector and, to conclude, we will outline a few ideas which can lead to thinking about an open innovation model for the sector, focused on the interaction of justice institutions with civil society, other government institutions and the private sector.
