An increasing number of young people under 30 do not complete
upper secondary education and have difficulty gaining a foothold
on the labour market. Hence, there is great interest, politically as
well as academically, in finding out ‘what works’ in terms of
helping young people. At the same time, however, there is also a
lack of research that examines the processes these young people
are involved in and the context that has an effect on these. By
applying the method of poetic inquiry, this article examines
subjectifications processes that have education as the focal point.
Poetic inquiry provides an opportunity to explore and construct
‘evocative’ and ‘polyvocal’ analyses of the young people’s
subjectification processes in the current employment policy
context. The analyses demonstrate how different forms of
‘distance’ occur and how the young people simultaneously are
trying to master these.
