This packet contains three papers from the World Conference on Comparative Adult Education (CAE). The first consists of the opening ceremony remarks by Alexander N. Charters reminding participants of the work of previous conferences and urging worldwide learning. The second paper is a report of a meeting of the Committee for Study and Research in Comparative Adult Education (CSRCAE). It defines and describes comparative adult education and discusses the nature of the committee. Plans to update the bibliographies of the CAE Association are announced. The final paper in the packet, by Margaret and Alexander Charters, summarizes the activities of the conference. Their report notes that the conference was the first to be held in a developing nation (Nigeria) and goes on to describe the six subthemes discussed at the conference: (1) the need for and relevance of CAE to social and economic development; (2) emerging theories and methodologies in CAE; (3) implications for CAE of recent research in other disciplines; (4) studies and research on CAE relevant to policy; (5) focal issues for CAE in the immediate future; and (6) means of exchange and knowledge about CAE. Actions for the future are suggested. (KC)
