First published in 1988, International Organizations in Education is a collection of essays written to explore the various roles of international organizations in the field of adult education.
The book highlights two distinct categories that emerged: organizations with a world-wide commitment, such as Unesco, ad those with a more regional basis, such as the African Association for Literacy and Adult Education. Each contributor examines the history and contemporary characteristics of the organization before going on to consider possible future directions. The achievements and role of such organizations are considered, and each author offers a depth of personal experience.
International Organizations in Education offers a varied and wide-ranging view of the history of international organizations in the field of education and the role of those organizations at the time of original publication.
