Summary
In recent years, lifelong learning has become one of the most widely shared education policy goals. This book shows how international organizations have promoted this idea and disseminated the need for it to countries all over the world. As a consequence of their activity, lifelong learning has become a central element of modern education policy, widely acknowledged and sometimes established under quite adverse national conditions. Jakobi traces the development of lifelong learning over three decades and across a variety of actors, analyzing international as well as national policy agendas. It offers a new way of looking at how and why wide-spread policy change happens across countries today. With the case of lifelong learning, it takes up one of the most prominent themes in current education policy
