Södertörn's firefighting union and civil volunteers : Collaboration on whose terms? (English)
Abstract [en]

This paper deals with a unique form of collaboration in Sweden between a public institution and civil society in the form of Södertörn's firefighting union and civil volunteers. This is a unique collaboration form in Sweden and is active in Hovsjö, a neighborhood in Södertälje. Collaboration as a term is generally seen as a positively charged concept that is widely used, but what does it mean in this context? To make a scientific deep dive in the collaborative form, a distinction is made between the theoretical terms of co-creation and co-production. These terms functions as two separate ideal forms of collaboration with different characteristics which make out the analytical lens of the paper to understand and classify the collaboration form. Co-creation refers to a collaboration form in which the end user has a role in the collaborative form which involves active involvement in the stages of production, that is the design of the concept itself. Co-creation as a concept and its use is reserved for collaborative forms where the end user is involved as co-initiator or designer. Co-production on the other hand refers to a collaboration form in which the end user has a clearer role as service provider and another actor sets the agenda. Interviews were conducted with representatives from Södertörn's firefighting union and a civil volunteer. The overall assessment of the collaborative form is that it can be categorized as coproduction, due to the relation between the actors involved in the collaboration form. Södertörn's firefighting union, who is the initiator, is leading and controlling the collaboration form. There is no common value creation in the design of the collaborative form, instead the value occurs in the execution phase, in terms of the rescue service who owns the agenda. The collaboration form is there for classified as co-production. Despite the dominant position of co-production, the analysis of the form of collaboration and its actors has not revealed any tensions between the two. All actors' views on the form of collaboration as well as the other actor are of a positive nature.
