Adult Education in Small States: The Case of Malta
Mayo, Peter; Pace, Paul J.; Zammit, Edward
Comparative Education, v44 n2 p229-246 May 2008
A small state faces several challenges with regard to adult continuing education and training. The paper discusses some of these challenges with specific reference to the Mediterranean small island state of Malta. It starts with a general discussion of some of the issues affecting adult education in a small state such as Malta that paves the way for the more focused analyses in the second and third sections. These sections focus on a selection of just two topics from among the many that affect adult education in Malta, namely those of adult education and work and adult education for sustainable development. These analyses are tackled from the perspective of the small state condition. (Contains 11 notes.)
