'Globalization' has become a key shorthand for describing some of the important changes affecting daily life in all parts of the world. Adult educators and trainers are grappling with the impacts of changing social relations in the economic, political, social, cultural and environmental spheres. There is particular concern for the majority of people who are poor, live in rural areas or urban slums and are marginal to decision making in their societies. This book is a collection of critical reflections on adult education and training which have traditionally had strong demarcation lines between them. A wide range of education and training strategies in different sites of practice, including civil society organisations, the workplace, and state institutions, are explored in both theory and practice. Important examples are given of practices which are challenging the dominant relations where human capital is emphasised before human values.
