Financing adult learning and education (ALE) is a highly discussed, complex and, at times, even controversial topic. As globally active organisations, the Institute for international Cooperation of the German Adult Education Association (DVV International) and the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) are committed to finding efficient ways to promote and support ALE worldwide. Sustainable financing mechanisms, taking also public spending into account, play a crucial role.
Against this background two studies have been conducted that make an attempt to shed light on the current situation from a global perspective, by analysing cases of selected countries, presenting good practice examples, discussing challenges and existing financing models.
The first study “Financing Adult Education. The way forward: what works, how and why?”, elaborated in partnership with ICAE, addresses the overall ALE sector, while the second study, commissioned by DVV International to an international expert team, looks deeper into public financing of the often underestimated field of popular, liberal and community education.
