Building Inclusive Communities through Education and Learning

Book Description

The book addresses the complex relationships among learning, education and the community. It examines the significance of the community for the individual’s development and the potential that learning and education have for the development of the community. The volume gathers together the findings of a number of quantitative and qualitative studies conducted on different samples, theoretical discussions set in comparative international contexts. Although the studies employ Slovenian samples and analyse situations in this country, the contributions address issues that are of concern to the global research community. Moreover, they respond to international debates and engage in the dialogue between the local/partial and the global/universal. The book is unique in its embeddedness in the intellectual continental European tradition that has been characterised by the failed historical experience of attempting collective unity through the community understood as a common identity in former Yugoslavia.
