Abstract

The aim of this study is to map out and describe the way employees in Swedish juvenile homes interpret, define and perceive, on the one hand, the project “Motverka Våld och Gäng” meaning “Counteract Violence and Gangs”, and on the other hand the role of the Coordinators employed in this project.

The role of the Coordinator is formally clear and unproblematic. The project management directives state what the Coordinators should (and should not) do. In the interviews for this survey the starting point is in fact the ambiguousness. The staff at the juvenile homes do not know or feel unsure about the role of the Coordinator and the purpose of the project. For example, they contested the projects name and meant that it did not include the type of problems that many of the projects youths suffered from.

When describing the Coordinator and his role he or she is portrayed as discoursively unclear (when it’s percieved as vaguely stated) and organizationally unclear (when they wonder who does what in the care-giving chain). The staff formulate (“draw”) a clearer role for the Coordinators when talking about their own “ordinary” pressing problems, for example the inertia of the Social Service.
