International Association of Universities, Paris (France).; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
Redistribution and redeployment of university resources, both human and material, have begun in a number of countries to meet the new needs of lifelong education. Selected case studies that appear to be characteristic and representative of different types of university situations in different countries are presented in this book. Analysis of the case studies may reveal useful criteria and future directions for the process of adaptation of the university to the needs of lifelong education. Contributions from different countries are as follows: "The Threshold of New Reforms in Sweden," by Hans Lowbeer; "Projects and Questions in Quebec," by Paul Lacoste, in collaboration with Andre Fortin; "Some Observations in the Light of the Experience of the University of Geneva," by Bernard Ducret; "Case-Study of the University of Zambia," by A.W.A. Yousif; "Lifelong Education Policies in Venezuela," by Victoria Heredia de Hernandez; "Case-Study of a Socialist Country: Poland," by Ryszard Wroczynski; "The Position of Ghana and Some Other African Countries," by K.A.B. Jones-Quartey; and "A French Private Education Experiment," by G. Leman. (SW)
