About the ALADIN Network

Following its vision of a global learning society, where information and knowledge on adult learning is created, well documented and made accessible to all, ALADIN is working towards facilitating informed policy-making, research and programme development by improving global access to information and documentation on adult learning and serving as an information broker between researchers, practitioners and policy makers by:

  • sharing relevant information on adult learning;
  • correcting the uneven distribution of adult learning documentation and information resources;
  • providing training in adult learning knowledge management.

The ALADIN Online Alert shares the latest publications in the areas of adult learning, adult literacy, lifelong learning and TVET on a bi-monthly basis and a list of Adult Learning Links provides fast access for further resources.

ALADIN has a clear mandate of UNESCO, CONFINTEA and the UIL Governing Board. Its various activities are coordinated by Lisa Krolak, Head of the Library at the UIL in Hamburg, in close cooperation with the ALADIN Advisory Committee. This committee consists of a maximum of ten active member, who are appointed by the ALADIN coordinator, taking the need for regional, linguistic, gender and sectoral diversity. The members assist in shaping ALADIN’s work, assessing the activities carried out, and promoting the work in different regions of the world.
