Adult education worldwide is a field within education that is challenged by very diverse societal and political conditions and is overall still much less acknowledged and structured than school education. A research project from Universität Hamburg (Germany), Rutgers University (USA) and University of Technology Sydney (Australia) has examined the state of Adult Learning and Education (ALE) in eight selected countries: Australia, Brazil, India, Jordan, South Africa, Kyrgyzstan, Thailand and Ukraine through interviews with expert informants in each of these countries. The study was initiated in 2022 by DVV International (Institut für Internationale Zusammenarbeit des Deutschen Volkshochschul-Verbandes e.V.) and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. 

The authors presented their findings at the annual conference with the regional directors of DVV International on June 20, 2023 in Bonn.

A webinar will take place on 19.09.2023 to share the research findings and get into discussions. Registration for this event is open until 18.09.2023, 12:00 h under the following link: https://www.conferences.uni-hamburg.de/e/studyonale
