Article
Full-text available
This paper examines the economic and social thought that has evolved around the Lisbon strategy, which aimed to turn the European Union into the world’s most competitive knowledge economy by 2010. It argues that a new regime of rationality has emerged in which economic and social objectives, which were previously thought to be at odds with one anot...

The close ties between modes of governing, subjectivities and critique in contemporary societies challenge the role of critical social research. The classical normative ethos of the unmasking researcher unravelling various oppressive structures of dominant vs. dominated groups in society is inadequate when it comes to understand de-politicizing mec...

In accounts of institutional change, discursive institutionalists point to the role of economic and political ideas in upending institutional stability and providing the raw material for the establishment of a new institutional setup. This approach has typically entailed a conceptualization of ideas as coherent and monolithic and actors as almost a...
Article
Across Europe, public employment services are experimenting with more holistic and cross‐sector collaborations to tackle the wicked problem of long‐term unemployment. These collaborations operate in a context characterised by tensions produced by multiple demands for accountability. Based on case studies of the accountability relations and challeng...
Article
This article seeks to provide a set of pointers for methodological reflections on Foucauldian-inspired analyses of the exercise of power. Michel Foucault deliberately eschewed methodological schemata, which may be why so little has been written on the methodological implications of his analyses. While this article shares the premise that we should...

Like most OECD countries, unemployed people in Denmark have been subject to activation policies imbued with rights and obligations for decades. However, during the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, activation and conditionality were temporarily suspended. This article explores what happens to the experience of unemployment when part of the sys...
Article
The European Social Dialogue (ESD) is a mixed story of ongoing negotiations between the social partners but with rather few binding agreements. Whereas some see the sparse actions as an inevitable consequence of deep structural and political asymmetries, others have pointed out the key role played by the Commission, as a “shadow of hierarchy”, in p...
Article
I artiklen undersøger vi, hvordan corona-krisen på forskellig vis omformer arbejdsløshedsoplevelsen i en dansk kontekst med et særligt fokus på selvansvaret. Selvansvaret eller ansvarliggørelsen kobles til aktivlinjens indtog i dansk beskæftigelsespolitik og konstruktionen af den aktive jobsøger. På baggrund af et mixed methods design bestående af...

Danske universiteter er i stigende grad optaget af at igangsætte forskningssamarbejder mellem undervisere og studerende som en særlig form for forskningsbaseret undervisning. Hvordan disse samarbejder kan og bør fungere i praksis, samt hvad der er de universitetspædagogiske implikationer heraf, er dog fortsat uklart. Denne artikel undersøger derfor...
Book
Activation policies which promote and enforce labour market participation continue to proliferate in Europe and constitute the reform blueprint from centre-left to centre-right, as well as for most international organizations. Rather than being disrupted the ‘active turn’ has consolidated by the recent financial and sovereign debt crises. Through a...

Thesis
Full-text available
Since the late 1980s, European welfare states and labour market regulation have gradually but radically been transformed into ways of underpinning a more “active society” where active usually entails paid work or activities, such as training and qualification, that aim towards work. The thesis investigates the transformation towards the ‘active soc...

It is not a new task to try to politically position Foucault. However, recently, the wish to make tactical use of this position to promote or denounce a particular political programme seems to have intensified. The debate especially concerns Foucault’s lectures concerns Foucault’s lectures on neoliberalism. Two recent books interpret the lectures a...

The following presents parts of an interview conducted with Maurizio Lazzarato discussing his 2012 book, The Making of the Indebted Man. In this interview, Lazzarato first elaborates on his theoretical inspirations. Drawing on the work of Deleuze and Guattari in order to connect Nietzsche and Marx, he develops a theory of debt suggesting that the p...
