2015 (English)In: Rights of children in the Nordic welfare states: Conceptual and empirical enquiries / [ed] Gro Hellesdatter Jacobsen, Copenhagen: NSU Press, 2015, 1, 51-71 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The focus of this chapter is on education as a social right and particularly the formation of ‘active citizens’ through cognitive behavioural techniques adopted by schools across Sweden. On the basis of interviews with staff from two different schools, as well as manuals, the analysis focuses on two therapeutic programmes. The theoretical point of departure is the theorization of governmentality developed in the wake of the work of Michel Foucault. The various techniques initiated within these programmes make a certain kind of governing possible – ‘governing in the name of freedom’. Overall, the teaching within these programmes can be viewed as expressing an advanced liberal governance, which involves educating children into active citizens, with the responsibility for developing their own future and both willing and able to take responsibility for their actions, rather than into passive bearers of rights.
