Issues of Citizenship: Coming-into-Presence and Preserving the Difference
Wildemeersch, Danny; Vandenabeele, Joke
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v29 n4 p487-502 Jul-Aug 2010
This paper explores how the report "Learning through Life" exemplifies the dominant policy discourse on lifelong learning emphasizing strongly individual social mobility. The paper explores further how this functionalist and reductionist turn in (adult) education has come about and how concepts of democratic citizenship and education may create new perspectives on how to deal with important challenges of society today.
