The freedom to choose? : A discourse analytic study regarding work and individual in labor market policies today (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine how work and individuals is portrayed in today’s labor market policies and workrelated coaching. To do this I am using discourse analysis. My theoretical points are social constructivism, governmentality, coaching and theories regarding activity. The results portray a picture of work as the foundation of society and the main way to break isolation. The result shows that the individual is at the center in today’s labor policy, which also can be seen in relation to workrelated coaching.
