Resumé

This article argues for the value of working with conflicts in social practices as resources for social collaboration, learning and development. The interest in conflicts in social practice is rooted in a preoccupation with social power relations and how to understand, work with and analyze power relations from a subject scientific perspective. Following this interest, a methodological framework, best described as a kind of ‘mobile ethnography’, is discussed and exemplified through an empirical example.. Furthermore a preliminary conceptual framework for understanding power as a capacity for action is presented. The overarching ambition of the article is to discuss what democratic collaboration and coexistence entails and how it might be supported conceptually and analytically.
