Citizenship as Politics


Citizenship as Politics Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book holds two main concepts: citizenship and adult education, and presents a diverse scope of ideas and experiences from different countries and perspectives in a rich indication to edify liberating practices and researches. Citizenship is closely linked with participation. When people are encouraged to take part in an authentic process of decision making, people do participate in public affairs. Here is the true meaning of citizenship related to the old idea to take part, to get involved in public issues and transform their community through participation. On the other hand, Lifelong Learning's concepts and practices seem to have forgotten that adult education is more than the preparation for a job. Adult education is learning for democracy; researching communities searching for a school for all; transforming communities; struggling for our rights; becoming awareness about environmental hazards; edifying the city or expressing ourselves through theatre or public art. Lifelong Learning's concepts and practices seem to have forgotten that life is more than the labour market. The entire life of women and men are the substance of what adult education is made of. The book is not only addressed to scholars, under and postgraduate students interested in citizenship and adult education, but also to practitioners working in communities in a participatory way.

Book News Annotation:

Most of them British or Iberian, education scholars explore links between adult education and citizenship in various countries and cultures. Their topics include a Scottish experience of adults learning for democracy, an interview with Colin Kirkwood on Freirean approaches to citizenship, care work as caring citizenship, recognizing life-long and life-wide learning within the scope of permanent education, citizenship and environmental adult education, and educating citizenship on the background of participatory budgets.
