“New research adds considerably to UNESCO’s knowledge base on building a learning society” says Arne Carlsen, Director of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning.
Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Singapore are in the process of becoming learning societies. These countries focus on educating the work force and investing in educational research.
UIL has just published, as the second volume in its series on Lifelong Learning Policies and Strategies, a report entitled Building a Learning Society in Japan, the Republic of Korea and Singapore by Jin Yang and Rika Yorozu. This report discusses policies, action plans, governance and financing from each country and draws common lessons.
The first volume in UIL’s series on Lifelong Learning Policies and Strategies, Key Issues and Policy Considerations in Promoting Lifelong Learning in Selected African Countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Namibia, Rwanda and Tanzania (PDF, 3.6 MB), is also available for free download.
