Abstract [en]

There are several destinations in Sweden that extend beyond municipal boundaries. In order to develop these destinations, municipal collaboration must be concluded with the aim of working together for the future and development of the destination.

The purpose of this essay is to study how interaction between participants in an municipal collaboration project leads to strategic decisions about destination development. Through four interviews with participants from the steering committee taking strategic decisions about the development of Stockholm archipelago, the study's purpose and questions have been answered.

The result is presented through three themes and five categories identified by analyzing the interviews with thematic analysis. It is clear from the results that the participants in the collaborative project work in relation to the geography that characterizes the Stockholm archipelago. A concrete example presented is that a new ferry line has been developed through the interaction of the operators at the destination with the aim of improving the poor transports that are a problem in the archipelago. Furthermore, the result of the study shows that the work of creating common visions and goals is a complex process that municipal officials do not have the mandate to influence over. This makes cooperation more difficult since each participating municipality must prioritize its vision first and the destinations in second.
