An Examination of Social Collective Decision-Making

This research investigates the under-researched phenomenon of adolescent social collective decision-making. Employing a longitudinal qualitative methodology, collective decisions made by high school prom organising committees are explored. Influencing strategies and approaches to manage conflict and conflict resolution are revealed. An original model proposes the roles of intra and inters coalitions.
