Formatted abstract
Complex social issues are increasingly addressed using collaboration
between third-sector organisations and state actors. This paper explores
the capacity to collaborate evident within two such networks in the initial
stages of an action research project aimed at fostering collaboration around
positive ageing initiatives. Findings are presented using a conceptual
framework for measuring capacity to collaborate. This framework includes
three dimensions – forms of capital, key processes employed for working
together, and characteristics of the context – that can facilitate or inhibit
collaboration. Applying the framework to an empirical situation provides
an assessment of the latent capacity to collaborate in two networks.
