More about the project

Previous collaboration research shows that problems and conflicts sometimes arise as a part of collaboration. This project analysing successful cooperation, even if it unfolds during shorter interaction sequences.

In this study, the author endeavours to describe the contributing factors that are necessary to achieve the phenomenon of a successful collaboration. The author does this partially with help from studies published in the literature, but especially by analysing his own empirical material: narratives from the interviewees and field notes. The aim is to analyse how and when the actors within youth care portray successful cooperation, and which discursive and interactive patterns are involved in the construction of this phenomenon.
