SILVA, Paulo Roberto da  e  MAYORGA, Claudia. Jovens nem nem brasileiros/as: entre desconhecimento das experiências, espetacularização e intervenções. Desidades [online]. 2019, n.23, pp. 10-23. ISSN 2318-9282.

The preoccupation with social continuity and the ideal ways of integrating young people in society, especially those from a poor background, makes the NEET (neither in employment nor in education or training) youth an adequate field for intervention by different social actors. The discomfort with the inactivity of poor youth is present along the history of brazilian youth and, today, it is under the term NEET that certain sections of the young population have been highlighted by the media, in social programs and politics. We analyse how the construction of the so called NEET youth as a social problem is sustained by a lack of knowledge of the experiences of poor youth, a tendency to create a spectacle around the fenomenon, and by the structuring of practices that intend to solve it. We reflect on how these titles renew the notion of a dangerous youth and construct paradoxical social practices.

Palavras-chave : NEET youth; poor youth; media; intervention; experience.
