Policy narratives about governance networks of town council politicians, administrative staff and volunteers in the municipality of Gladsaxe Despite an increased national focus in recent years on the advantages of the volunteers’ contribution to the municipal performance of tasks, research shows that official volunteer policies are far from what is actually implemented locally in the municipalities, and that the collaboration among volunteers, administration and town council politicians thus does not proceed smoothly in the municipalities. Starting from the municipality of Gladsaxe and based on the implementation part and the evaluation part of the policy process, this thesis therefore wishes to examine what kind of local policy narratives that exist regarding the governace network of volunteers, administrative staff and town council politicians in the municipality of Gladsaxe, including which expectations and anticipations the participants have, in this light, about the new shared volunteer policy. This is examined theoretically using primarily Sørensen and Torfing’s theoretical reflections on governance networks, and the management of these, along with Roe’s theories on the narrative policy analysis (Roe 1994 & Sørensen og Torfing 2002-12).
