Adult education remains at the top of the European agenda since the beginning of this century when the Lisbon strategy identified education as a key resource for European development. [...]

EAEA has an understanding of “Europe” within the borders defined by the Council of Europe. Thus EAEA’s membership comes from 42 countries, including those who are not members of the European Union. Discussion among our members showed us that the success achieved inside the EU had – with some remarkable exclusions – no impact, or very little impact on the non-EU member states. This momentum motivated the initiative for compiling a study on “Adult Education outside the EU”. The idea is to give an overview of the situation in the regions neighbouring the EU and to formulate policy recommendations for the national decision-makers, EU member states and the Commission. Most of the studies in the various countries were compiled by member organisations of the EAEA or dvv international national offices, with a few done by independent experts. We concentrated on those regions where adult education systems are less developed and remain to be further developed, especially on countries in transformation, many of them with an outstanding adult education tradition, very often deeply affected by the political developments in the 90s of the 20th Century.

Despite this fact, we would like to summarise the recommendations made in this book, not without underlining that theLifelong Learning for the whole of Europe challenges for the future included in each national study remain a main source for discussion and decision-making.
