Lifelong Learning and Active Citizenship in a Global Society: An Analysis of European Union Lifelong Learning Policy
Jarvis, Peter
Journal of Adult and Continuing Education, v10 n1 p3-18 May 2004
Globalisation and Europeanisation are changing the nature of the nation state and, therefore, of citizenship itself. This article briefly reviews this process. Thereafter the article concentrates on the way that the European Commission's policy documents on lifelong learning have argued that employability and active citizenship should be the outcomes of lifelong learning. These relationships, it is argued, are more complex than the policy documents suggest.
