Poverty, Work and Education
von Kotze, Astrid
Convergence, v40 n3-4 p231-237 2007
This contribution suggests that if we are serious about adult education in the context of poverty eradication we require some shifts away from neo-liberal assumptions and values. Women and/in the informal economy should become the central focus, and livelihood studies would better allow us to understand the complex daily struggle for food and the necessities of life intertwined with care-work and community-building.
