La modernità liquida e il ‘gioco’ del confine

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Liquid modernity and the 'game' of the border

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay concludes a day of intense debate between scholars of social and human disciplines on the issue of the difficult education of young people to legality. In a context of globalization and a liquid society, the idea is widespread that there is no clear boundary between what is legal and what is illegal, and young people are affected by this uncertainty. For adults, taking informal elements into educational processes takes on a new, enormous effort. The essay suggests a negotiating and creative approach to the difficult, but indispensable, guiding function of significant adults who have the task of "bringing the new generations into the world", experimenting together with them the possibilities and consequences of crossing the border.
