Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to analyse the discourse of lifelong learning in Europe and how it constructs the European citizen as one who is always learning. Drawing on the Foucauldian concept of governmentality my interest will be directed at questions concerning governing of such a citizen. Who is the European citizen to become; how should such a citizen be governed; why should governing be practiced (the teleos of government)? In this paper, I will especially focus on analysing practices of study guidance as part of the process of fostering our will to learn.
