Abstract

In this chapter, the authors explore and identify the rhetoric and practices in the ‘collaborative turn’ concerning cross-sector collaboration and apply a model of the collaborative turn continuum that captures four dynamic dimensions. The analysis is based on qualitative interviews and focus groups with a differentiated group of civil society organisations (CSOs) in the social field and different actors from Danish municipalities. The authors aim to answer the following questions: How do municipal actors and CSOs, respectively, position themselves rhetorically and practically in terms of ‘the collaborative turn’? What potentials and pitfalls emerge? Firstly, they explore how municipal actors understand and position themselves in the collaborative turn. Secondly, they analyse how a differentiated number of CSOs find themselves situated in these changing arenas.

OtherPå Center for forskning i Idræt, Sundhed og Civilsam-fund (CISC) på Syddansk Universitet har vi gennem tre år arbejdet på forskningsprojektet ’Samspillet mellem den frivillige og den kommunale sektor’. I 2019 slutter projektet. Her kan du læse om forskningsprojektet og downloade en række publikationer fra projektet.www.sdu.dk/frivillig-kommunalForskningsprojektet afsluttes med en forskerkonfe-rence, som du inviteres til. Konferencen skal være for forskere, der beskæftiger sig med samspillet mellem den frivillige og den offentlige sektor. I Danmark bru-ges udtrykket samskabelse for en ny form for samspil mellem de to sektorer. Internationalt bruges begreber som co-production, co-creation eller collaboration. Men der findes også andre samspilsformer.
