Areas of work
UIL works in tandem with ministries and local and regional stakeholders. We offer advice on lifelong learning policy development and implementation strategies, working from the ground up to develop technical support that can make a difference in a given country context.
UIL develops collaborative policy and action research, workshops, courses and other resources. We help to build the capacities of those who make policies and design programmes in the field.
Research and foresight
UIL publishes research, global and regional reports, policy papers and forward-looking studies in the areas of its mandate. We conduct research, and compile and disseminate new insights and recommendations.
UIL monitors progress against global goals and recommendations. We reveal the state of play in adult learning and education, and support Member States in monitoring learning outcomes and developing evaluation and assessment tools.
Advocacy and networking
UIL promotes lifelong learning as the leading educational paradigm for inclusive and sustainable learning societies. We actively seek dialogue at the national, regional and global level, and support civil society and non-governmental organizations in petitioning for positive change.
