Abstract [en]

This article highlights and problemizes some challenges and dilemmas in international cooperation. The focus is on individual and collative processes of communication, interpreting, understanding and sensemaking - processes emerging as challenging when participants have different kind of frames and contexts of knowledge. These kinds of challenges are ever present, but become however more apparent when people from quite different cultural, social, economical and political conditions meet in international cooperation. In this article, experiences and challenges made within NQTNE are analysed and discussed in this perspective. One conclusion is that even if there are communicative and conceptual obstacles having to be overcome when cooperate internationally, cooperation and comparative perspectives is a powerful tool to become aware of assumptions that are taken for granted; to challenge one’s own perspectives; raise new kind of questions and construct new perspectives and new ways to conceptualise, think, and act.
