Global Networks, Local Actions: Rethinking Adult Education Policy in the 21st Century Global Networks, Local Actions Rethinking adult education policy in the st century examines public policy developments in adult education, exploring the policy framing of adult education practice in a range of socio cultural contexts, and contributing to the development of policy research from global and comparative perspectivesDrawing from multidisciplinary fields such as adult education, comparative and international education, and sociology, chapters analyse empirically grounded studies from the US, Italy, Argentina and Brazil Each study helps to identify how political agents interact at international, regional, national and local scales, and what the implications are for publically funded interventions in adult education While this book recognises the complexity of adult education policy, it argues for the need to deconstruct the false belief that what is global in adult education may be intrinsically distinct from the characteristics of geographical or social territories in which adult education occurs Instead, it points to localised norms and ideas on Adult Basic and Secondary Education as ultimately contained in, and constituting, what is at times perceived as global, or abstracted from definite geographical or social territoriesThis book calls for a global sociology of adult education in response to global challenges, and makes an important contribution to our understanding of developments in public adult education policy As such, it will be of key interest to researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of adult education, comparative and international education, education policy and politics, sociology of education, and global studies
