Policy corner

How could adult education be more efficient in preventing unemployment and social exclusion among
young adults? Does the adult education make enough for preventing political frustration among young people at risk of exclusion? What should be done to motivate vulnerable groups to take actively part in the social, economic and political development of the society? How could active societal participation be enhanced among immigrants and other vulnerable groups?

EduMAP Policy Corner gathers a wide range of policy-makers, educators and researchers in the field of adult education, social sciences, information sciences and law to discuss the above-mentioned issues. The detailed themes for discussion stem from the research conducted in the EduMAP project.

The blog discussion aims to support dialogue between researchers, policy-makers, educational authorities and educators. The discussions are open to the networks and collaborators of the EduMAP researchers, eg. members of the project’s international and national advisory boards and other collaboration
partners.

You are very welcome to make comments or start new discussions!

Please, see the recent reports of the project:

  • Research report, based on findings of the Task “Broad research on adult education in the EU”. The report provides state-of-the-art knowledge and an overview of research and policy developments in Adult Education (AE) and Life Long Learning (LLL) in 28 EU Member States and Turkey and investigates the effectiveness of AE for engaging and involving young adults aged 16-30 in active political, social and economic participation. The report includes historical perspectives on LLL and a theoretical-conceptual overview of various conceptions of AE.
  • The review report of existing commercial IDS systems was completed in January 2017. The report shows that the IDS systems from different application areas share common features that can also be utilized in the field of education.
