Maitra, Srabani; Guo, Shibao – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2019
In the age of transnational migration, the practices and policies of lifelong learning in many immigrant-receiving countries continue to be impacted by the cultural and discursive politics of colonial legacies.

The Chinese are one of the oldest immigrant communities in Europe, and in some countries among the most economically successful.

In the context of flexible capitalism, lifelong learning has been posed as a pathway for individuals to accumulate skills and actualise potentials.
