Abstract [en]

The intention of this study is to examine whether leadership and collaboration can explain success in crisis management, and if so to what extent and how. A hypothesis presented in previous research, suggesting that leadership and collaboration are key to successful crisis management, is applied and tested. The management of the terror attack in Stockholm in April 2017 was deemed successful and serves as a case of successful crisis management for the hypothesis to be tested on.The findings in this study suggest that although several organisations and actors were part of the crisis response the police were viewed as the main leader to whom other actors and the public turned for confirmation. Additionally, the thesis finds that the collaboration between similar actors, or actors with similar tasks, is of particular importance rather than all actors being involved in the collaboration. Conclusively, the result of this study suggests that fortunate circumstances were also a key to success in this case.
