In this specific case, the struggle is linked to an endeavour for maintaining traditional ways of life in the place where people were born and raised. Our theoretical framework is related to several authors, such as Freire, Gramsci,…

Ghana has been identified as an important example of democracy in Africa, yet the story of this democratic success overlooks the crucial role social movement activism and learning have played in locally reconfiguring and deepening what democracy means. A key dimension of this overlooked-story is ongoing efforts to contest both local and global…

Steele, Tom – Studies in the Education of Adults, 2010
Popular education movements can be dated back to the religious heresies of the Middle Ages but only become well-formed movements following the eighteenth-century Enlightenment.
