    Abstract

    Complex societal problems are often characterised by the involvement of many actors with different backgrounds, interests, values etc. Especially in cases of complex problems in which actors are involved via complex relationships and interdependencies, an integrative negotiation process, characterised by social learning, is preferred: actors gradually leave their sectoral view on the problem. A process of reframing takes places. The cource of these (re)framing processes is explored
