Abstract [sv]

Denna studies centrala syfte är att undersöka rollen som informationsteknik spelar samt de problem som inte gå att komma undan i så kallad tvärkulturell och gränsöverskridande samarbete genom att undersöka fallet mellan den svenska staden Borlänge och den kinesiska staden Wuhan. Arbets- och utvärderingsmetoden som används i studien bygger på är den vetenskapliga forskningsansatsen hermeneutik och det innebär utvärdering av intervjuer på ett kvalitativt sätt som handlar främst om observationer, förståelse och sökning efter mönster och samband. Genom detta sätt fick författaren resultat som visar att informationsteknik spelar en avgörande roll för samarbete mellan Borlänge och Wuhan men har vissa barriärer som har svårt att komma undan såsom skillnader och avvikelse i kultur, geografi, tid, språk, arbetsvanor och politik.
