Lifelong Learning to Combat Social Exclusion: Policies, Provision and Participants in Five European Countries
This EU-funded Socrates lifelong learning initiative provides the opportunity to compensate those from lower socio-economic groups who remain significantly under-represented in European higher education. There is a widespread assumption that in an age of ‘mass’ higher education, lifelong learning opportunities are available to all. This comparative study tests this assumption by examining lifelong policies, lifelong learning provision and the lifelong learners themselves, in universities in five western European countries.
