This important new publication looks back to recent major milestones in international policy development in adult learning and education and ahead to the Seventh International Conference on Adult Education – CONFINTEA VII – in 2022.
CONFINTEA VI, held in Brazil in 2009, closed with the adoption of the Belém Framework for Action (BFA), which recorded the commitments of Member States and presented a strategic guide for the global development of adult learning and education.
The third Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE 3), published in 2016, drew on survey data to evaluate progress made by countries in fulfilling the commitments made in Brazil.
The CONFINTEA VI Mid-Term Review, held in Suwon, Republic of Korea, in October 2017, took stock of progress made by Member States in the past eight years, looking ahead to the publication of GRALE 4 in 2019 and CONFINTEA VII in 2022.
This report summarizes the discussions that animated the Mid-Term Review conference and gives readers a brief survey of the key issues concerning progress against the BFA, across all world regions.
