The document is divided into four parts. The first part contains the preliminary report which defines the situation on which the international recommendation and its scope will be based. It includes a discussion of its legal character, historical background, definition of adult education, objectives and strategy, content, and other questions which might be regulated on an international basis. The second section, Annex 1, contains the preliminary draft recommendation and provides information on the following areas related to adult education development: definition, objectives and strategy, structures, content, methods of adult education and research, training and status of persons engaged in adult education work, relation between adult education and youth education, relation between adult education and work, and international cooperation. The third section, Annex 2, consists of a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary on the recommendation. The last section presents the Canadian response to the proposed international instrument on the development of adult education. (EC)
