This book contributes to the debate of the complex relations between development and adult learning in Europe, both at a local and global level. This integrated analysis provides models for interpreting the reality of macro and micro-development, and also for clues on how to make populations life's better. The book will be useful to researchers in the field of adult education, as well as other social actors (NGOs, social economists, sociologists, and practitioners) concerned with the recent trends in human development and how adult education can help people to deal with it.
