2014 (English)In: Challenging the 'European Area of Lifelong Learning': A Critical Response / [ed] George Zarifis and Maria Gravani, Dordrecht: Springer Netherlands, 2014, 1, 99-107 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this chapter is to analyse how governing operates in the present time through discourses on lifelong learning and employability. A special interest is directed at what kind of citizen is being shaped through such discourses and how those discourses are taken up and shaped by those who are their target. Drawing on a governmentality perspective, policy documents from the EU and OECD and interviews with care workers in elderly care participating in an in-service training programme have been analysed. The chapter illustrates how care workers are both positioned and position themselves as responsible for their own employability.
