Abstract

This book intends to deepen the knowledge of the extended and uncertain transitions from school to work and to higher education by analysing the perspectives of youths and young adults and by addressing policies and institutional practices. The book critically examines the ‘transition machinery’ consisting of various education and training measures, projects and schemes, provided by educational institutions, the EU, ministries, municipalities and non-governmental organisations. Treating lack of education and unemployment mainly as individual problems, personal deficiencies or identity issues, the solutions are likewise individualised. The book illustrates how youth transitions are intertwined with social structures, power relations and differences.

Abstract

The current political discourse on the "further development and control of child and youth welfare" attempts to discredit and repress outpatient help for upbringing. The present "plea" interferes professionally and politically in this debate. The authors provide a critical assessment of the current situation of child and youth welfare and in particular of educational assistance and trace the process of the debate on the "further development and control of educational assistance". On the basis of detailed description and analysis of the two basic approaches to action in social work (social work in and with the social space on the one hand and individual casework, e.g. educational assistance, on the other), it deals with the question of whether the controversy alleged by politicians between the two approaches to action is technically justified. In this context, the two approaches to action are presented in their history and development and in their different conceptions. In addition to a clear plea for the preservation and consistently professional design of educational assistance in the context of life-world orientation, this also leads to the realisation that social work in general - and especially in times of neo-liberalisation of the social - is subject to the risk of individualisation. On the other hand, within both approaches it is also possible today to fend off this tendency and to act as a critical force in this society. In addition to the technical, ideological and political examination of the new control intentions of politics vis-à-vis aid for education, this book contains detailed descriptions and discussions on various individual topics, among others: - Technical characteristics, action orientations and process design of the action approaches "Outpatient individual case assistance" and "Work in and with the social space" (8.4 and 9.3, 9.4) - What shares does social work itself have in its partly unprofessional state? (Section 4.4) - Presentation and discussion of the concept of "social space orientation" (8.5) - Individualisation: What is this? How can it be avoided? (Chapter 8)

Abstract

Le surf, comme toute pratique humaine, est révélateur de sens et de signification, et la construction autour de la vague porteuse d'un dispositif scénique qui se réalise sous nos yeux donne à réfléchir à trois tendances majeures de cette fin de siècle : la première est celle de l'individuation qui se distingue de l'individualisme qui est repli sur soi ; la deuxième est liée à l'émergence de nouvelles territorialités ; la troisième est inhérente aux discours énonciateurs qui sont repris par les média, les pouvoirs et les agents économiques. Bordeaux et l'Aquitaine sont des lieux où s'élabore en France une socio-géographie des sports à partir d'analyses valorisant la dimension sociale des faits spaciaux. Des études sur les sports collectifs et notamment le rugby ont déjà permis de définir un processus emblématique d'identification communautaire fondé sur le club, le stade et la communauté locale. Ici, en déplaçant l'analyse sur des pratiques individuelles, nous mettons en lumière un processus symbolique d'individuation territoriale fondé sur la diversité des modalités de pratiques et les agrégations sociales éphémères.
