Globalisation and lifelong learning

    Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearch


    The paper discusses how concepts and practises of lifelong learning interact with the multiple processes of globalisation that characterise the present. Three types of interaction are discussed: the role of international organisations in educational policies, the development of international educational markets and the unintended consequences of globalisation for education and learning.
