Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to follow the processes involved in the wind power projects in Laholm municipality, by investigating wind power discourses in the view of landscape theories concerned with the relation between man, nature and society, and to put concepts and arguments into action by introducing them to actors and networks, through action research.

The study tried to answer the following questions:

  1. In what ways can we understand the relations between man, nature and society in this case?
  2. What does the arguments concerning wind power consist of and how can they be explained related to the use of resources?
  3. What social and economical consequences may the wind power projects have for the community?
  4. What are of concerns for the researcher who is intervening through action research?
  5. How did the collaborative and deliberative processes succeed in the planning implementation process?

The study shows that when resources are at stake in a local community, it will activate and accentuate the boundaries between different groups.
