Abstract:
This essay critically examines the process of governmentality as revealed in the construction and resistance to the categorisation and classification of 'Healthy Senior Citizenship'. This also includes an illustrative analysis of data from a national UK qualitative interview study of the input into the policy process of older adults in voluntary and community organisations. The paper demonstrates how governmentality finds its expression within the construction of healthy senior citizenship as synonymous with activity and participation within the technologies of collaboration and consultation. The conclusion reflects upon developing a critical sociology of old age in order to scrutinize conceptions of the 'problems' of governing an ageing population in post-welfarist or advanced liberal states.
