YANEZ-URBINA, Cristopher. The objectification of youth sexuality: critical discourse analysis of transnational policy. Psicol. Conoc. Soc. [online]. 2023, vol.13, n.2, pp.68-87.  Epub 31-Ago-2023. ISSN 1688-7026.

Considering the emergence of transnational policies that establish programmatic designs, goals and objectives to guide local contexts in the construction of national policies aimed at reducing social gaps in order to promote economic development, it is necessary to analyze how youth sexuality is discursively constructed as an object to be managed within the framework of transnational policies. A qualitative study was carried out using a Critical Discourse Analysis of a corpus of documents that establish guidelines and technical orientations for the development of a problematization and intervention on youth sexuality from Chilean education. The results address the configuration of a textual surface as a material continuum through which a mode of action takes place; a discursive dimension that exposes three problematizations; a) welfare for economic development, b) strategic population for human potential and c) strategic thematic for human potential; and finally, the knotting of these components in a device identified as Comprehensive Sexuality Education. The political and social implications of the perspective from which focalization guidelines on youth sexuality are established are discussed, as well as the establishment of neoliberal policies that appeal to early training as a way of governing populations based on the development of skills, knowledge and habits for individual prevention of contextual risks as a model to avoid barriers to the economic development of countries.
