Abstract [en]

This paper has as its objective to analyze how the adult learner is being governed in Sweden and how this way of governing is specific for the present time. This process will be related to processes taking place on the European level in its recent reforms on higher education. I-m inspired by the foucaultian concepts of genealogy and governmentality (Foucault 2003a, 2003b) as a tool for interpretation. A discourse analysis is made of official documents produced in Sweden concerning adult education and higher education during the last Century and European documents on higher education during the last decade. The results shows how the governing process have changed from a more collective to a more individualistic one.
