2013 (English)In: Popular education, power and democracy: Swedish experiences and contributions / [ed] Ann-Marie Laginder, Henrik Nordvall, Jim Crowther, NIACE - National Institute of Adult Continuing Education, 2013, 1, 99-121 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Popular education, a distinctive Swedish tradition of lifelong learning, has always concerned itself with the relationship between learning, power, and democracy in society, rather than having a purely individualistic and instrumental approach to learning for employability, which has dominated policy and practice. Through the themes of power and democracy, this book examines popular education's contribution to enhancing people's lives in communities. It reflects on the wider significance and explores the impact on the political culture of the state and the cultural politics of society within and outside Sweden, including the US, Japan, Canada, and Tanzania. As a comprehensive and unique collection, the book balances historical reflection, contemporary issues, and the international impact of popular education, combining theoretical analysis and empirical data.Show more Show less
