Abstrakt EN: This paper highlights the need to analyze the popularity of the concept of active ageing with respect to the possibilities that such approach to ageing opens up to social policy, social work and to seniors themselves. It analyzes active ageing as a strategy of management of ageing population - i.e. as a form biopolitics, which encourages elderly people to use various self-management practices to manage the "risk" of individual ageing and simultaneously a kind of "therapy" for society, which has to challenge demographical ageing. At the same time the idea of active ageing is transformed to a form of professional capital that enables gerontology to extend its sphere of action. Finally, the prominence of the idea of active ageing gave rise to a new form of individual capital that use the active life-style as a new platform for the (re)construction of inequalities in old age.
