Abstract
Because of a more globalised world the national states have been forced to make structural changes at both national, regional and local level to cope with different challenges.

Because of a more globalised world the national states have been forced to make structural changes at both national, regional and local level to cope with different challenges. The regional community has become an important area which has resulted in a policy of more self governing, both for the regional and the local level.

The aim of the thesis is to study the relation between regional and local level in the partnerships organisation. To fulfil the aim of the thesis, a case study of Region Skåne is used. The analyse is based on expressions such as cooperation, conflict, power and influence.

The result of the thesis confirms that the opinion between the regional and the local level is very different. The representatives from Region Skåne experience the cooperation as quite good because it creates an opportunity for discussions and a possibility to learn from the other actors which in turn creates a qualification in the exchange of knowledge. On the other hand the actors feel a weak interest from their local communities to cooperate in the partnership. One big reason for this low interest is probably a lack of power to make concrete decisions. Furthermore, the huge amount of actors creates a limited space for all actors to get heard. It creates a conflict of interests, where the small actors usually lose to the advantage of the bigger actors. (Less)
