The study was based on observations from eight meetings, the participants were eight probationers and four probation officers. The observation material was supplemented with short interviews with the probation officers and surveys answered by the probationers. I found that the meetings are strictly structured. First meetings are divided into five phases while follow-up meetings only contain four phases. The probation officer controls the structure and content of the meeting but also who is gets to speak when. All meetings are associated with certain social standards and norms. The probation officers’ power comes from representing the organisation in charge of the meeting and the social standards connected with this organisation. (Less)
