23 SES 01 C, Policies & Politics of Exclusion and Inclusion (Part 1)
Paper Session to be continued in 23 SES 02 C
In the introduction, I contextualize the object of study: educational activities in individualized social inclusion programs for adults at social risk. In order to do so, first I will review the Welfare State foundations and its evolution towards residual models by public cuts and privatisation. Then, I will focus on the EU Social Policy and its linking with activation and workfare. Finally, I describe Guaranteed Minimum Income (GMI) programmes, where the object of study takes place, and their increasing vinculation with individual responsibility (Wacquant, 2010).
I argue that these neoliberal transformations, which are global in the European Union social and educational policy, influence greatly my object of study: professional training activities for adults at social risk. This neoliberal influence will have effects on different aspects of these professional training programmes such as: curriculum, contents, activities, aims, teacher role and so on.
