Restricted access

The importance attached to adult education institutions throughout this book leads to a discussion of structures and institutional agency. The analyses of lifelong learning (LLL) at a micro, meso and macro level emphasize both institutional and socio-personal processes, including their implications for policy-making. By treating LLL as a social field, institutional perspectives on social change and path-dependency are displayed. This necessitates looking further into the social science perspectives, and our concluding remarks start with a retrospective of them.
