Student thesis: Subject Module Project


An investigation of stat-thrid sector partnerships as a model for cross-sector collaboration. Two state financed Projects called "Professional Volunteers" are empirical cases under investigation. In the case-analysis, the organisation of the two partnerships are investigated in order to trace the partnership model's potentials and pitfalls. The analysis builds on to hypotheses extracted from the two predominant perspectives found in the reserach litterture on stat - third sector partnerships: an innovation- and isomphic hypotheses. The main conlusion is that the two partnerhips' innovative potentials are limited by the existing insitutional power structures of isomorphy.
