I am a Ph.D researcher in AGORA for the study of social justice and equality in education- research centre, University of Helsinki. In my research I study policies and practises aiming to reduce young people’s social exclusion. By scrutinising both policy documents and following different education and guidance programmes, I analyse how young people are governed, and with what criteria young people are described as ‘at risk’ or ‘vulnerable’ of social exclusion and marginalisation. I am especially focusing on the ways in which young people are steered in these policies and their implementations towards a ‘desirable’ future both for young people and society as a whole.
