2018 (English)In: The Dynamics of Entrepreneurial Contexts.: Frontiers in European Entrepreneurship Research / [ed] U. Hytti, R. Blackburn & S. Tegtmeier, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2018, p. 54-75Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter takes a discourse approach drawing upon governmentality and the concepts of programme and technology. It focuses on how a programmatic initiative – a strategy for implementing entrepreneurship in schools – is made operable in practice by means of a technology: a competence development initiative. The results illustrate the process of how entrepreneurship gets translated into a new discourse based on an entrepreneurial approach, which takes on a broader perspective including life-long learning, co-operation with the society and democratic values, thus stretching the programme beyond its initial intentions. Moreover, the entrepreneurial approach could bring unintended consequences, which the discourse so far has tended to marginalize or even exclude. The chapter questios what is often taken for granted when it comes to entrepreneurship in schools, the tenet that wwhat is good for business is good for education and society at large’.
