Disturbed by "The Stranger:" State Crafting Remade through Educational Interventions and Moralisations
Moldenhawer, Bolette; Øland, Trine
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v11 n3 p398-420 2013
This article addresses two questions. First, how does a state, in casu the Danish welfare state, based on universalism and social rights as regards its citizens, deal with immigrants and their descendants through education? Second, how does such a state manage to make its differential treatment of human beings work legitimately, that is, what arguments, what interventions and moralisations, are used through the workings of school education? The article carries out an analysis of policies since the 1980s and depicts the construction of "the stranger" parallel to an analysis of the state crafting processes that go on in terms of professional educational interventions in "Højmarken" School, a school placed in an urban poor area.
