Boeren's new book published (7.3.2016)

Dr Ellen Boeren's new title "Lifelong learning participation in a changing policy context: an interdisciplinary theory", published by Palgrave-Macmillan, is now available.

Drawing on the role of individuals, education and training providers and countries' social policy actions, and borrowing insights from psychology, sociology and economics, this book works towards an interdisciplinary theory of adult lifelong learning participation. It explores the fragmented evidence of why adults do or do not participate in adult lifelong learning activities and focuses on the relevance of policy, the social character and expected benefits of lifelong learning participation and discusses the potential implications for policy, practice and research.
