Civil society and adult education provision

Språk: EN

Publicerad Petra Mathilde Jørs

Abstract:
"This paper aims to discuss to what extent civil society organisations have impacted on the nature of adult education provision. It argues that civil society is a medley with distinct institutions with different ideologies, either pushing adult education to the needs of the labour market or to an agenda of emancipation and freedom. Drawing from examples of three distinct countries - Sweden, South Africa and the United States - it concludes that civil society has shaped much of adult education paradigm throughout history and it continues to be a privileged site of struggle to counter-hegemonic learning take place aiming for more democracy and equality."
