    Abstract

    Lifelong Learning Participation in a Changing Policy Context is Ellen Boeren’s first monograph and the culmination of more than 10 years of experience in researching participation issues in adult education. The book’s narrative is deeply rooted in the author’s academic journey, which gives it a personal and easy-to-relate-to quality. It is a short but information-rich book with the ambitious aim of proposing a new interdisciplinary approach to ‘adult lifelong learning participation’, drawing on a wide range of disciplines which include economics, educational research, political sciences, psychology and sociology. The monograph is divided into three parts and nine chapters.
