Vulnerabilizing Young People: Interrupting the ethos of vulnerability, the neoliberal rationality, and the precision education governance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This essay is about the ethos of vulnerability, young people, and policies and practices related to youth support systems in Finland. Our aim is to scrutinize the alliance of the ethos of vulnerability and neoliberal rationality as well as its outcomes in terms of support systems and young people from various backgrounds. In the end, we take our analysis further to see how this alliance is associated with education and how it works by de-politicising, narrowing, and individualizing education toward a new kind of highly tailored precision education governance.
