CONFINTEA crystallized an idea into an event, and made of an event an agreement between countries, principally by governments wishing to recognize and give impetus to the shifts taking place in the world of adult learning. However, the idea of adult learning, as it is now understood, is so broad and so all encompassing that to try to follow the whole field is to miss the essentials. How then to monitor the follow-up to CONFINTEA in its entirety when the field is so vast?

Unfortunately, however, a large minority of the world’s population remains unable to...

This document is an attempt to open a dialogue among educators working in the area of complex emergencies. It recognizes that most of the newly tested educational interventions lack a long-term perspective. Education, whether for peace and reconciliation or in the reconstruction of human resources, is hardly addressed at present. The case studies described here provide a vivid account of an approach using kits. Clearly, different contexts and levels of emergency warrant different kinds of response. Thus, there is the need for further research from field experiences, especially at the...
