Abstract [en]

This paper focuses youths in peer groups who, during their leisure time, play music in a rock band. What I intend to explore in this paper is organizational aspects in relation to how the band came together and how the group manages their interaction and leadership issues, in order to study the relations, positions and the games of negotiations that takes place within the group. My empirical data is collected through observations and interviews with youth in the age of 16-20 year old. All interviews and observations are conducted in one location in the middle part of Sweden. I then use negotiation theories as analytical tools in order to translate young people’s experiences of interaction and organizing of peer groups into an understanding of what meanings they hold for their learning of democracy. The purpose with this paper is to develop theoretical concepts based on empirical material. In turn, these theoretical concepts might contribute to a wider understanding of democratic fostering processes within schooling.
