expansive learning and mo(ve)ments beyond ‘gang exit’overskridende læring - situationer/bevægelser, der udfordrer og overskrider 'bande-exit'
The paper develops a social practice theoretical framework to analyze expansive learning in relation to Danish gang exit intervention. We follow 22-year-old Bilal’s movements and moments in and out of gang communities, and how Bilal, collectively with his mentor and teacher Jesper and other role models is ‘walking and expanding the margins’ of Danish exit intervention. At age 12, Bilal started a trajectory becoming ‘more of’ and later ‘less of’ a criminal gang member. The paper explores new belongings and (lack of) meanings in and across educations, interventions and gang communities, and how Bilal through recognition in his new communities reinvents himself, us and others, moving beyond marginal positions in and across contexts such as Danish people college, the prison, as well as other intervention contexts organized in a collaboration between his local municipality, Jesper and communities with students, professionals and former gang members.
