This proposal is made under the terms of the ESFs scheme European collaborative research projects in the social sciences in collaborations with teams from 5 other countries (Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy and Sweden). The project as a whole is a multi-disciplinary cross national study of affiliation/disaffiliation in interaction. The study proposed here is an investigation of the interactional underpinnings of social cohesion, in the context of activities in talk-in-interaction (in formal anfdinformal settings) which have the potential for generating conflict and mis-alignment between participants
