Wu, Jinting – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2019
The Chinese are one of the oldest immigrant communities in Europe, and in some countries among the most economically successful. Media portraits of immigrant Chinese, however, are often filtered through racialised stereotypes, as culturally insular and economically savvy opportunists working in low-end take-outs, retails, and garment workshops.…

Lange, Elizabeth; Young, Susan – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2019

This study examines participation in non-formal training by the total amount of training during a year. In the…

Livingstone, D. W. – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2018
The basic argument of this paper is that, in the wake of austerity measures against public education accumulating since the early 1980s, professional teachers at all levels may have been losing control of their jobs and faced decreasing opportunities for continuing their own learning. Empirical evidence is drawn mainly from a unique time series of…

Marsden, Scott – International Journal of Lifelong Education, 2018
My insurgent curatorial strategy incorporates theory around dialogue and is used to develop a participatory and collaborative process that gives voice to those who are marginalised and/or disfranchised and are suppressed by dominant social narratives. My strategy demonstrates how art galleries and museums can function as sites for community…

Active citizenship is increasingly being framed in the context of lifelong and life-wide learning.
