Presenting Landscapes of Lifelong Learning Policies across Europe – Online Book Event


We proudly announce the online presentation and discussion of the book “Landscapes of Lifelong Learning Policies across Europe – Comparative Case Studies” (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022) edited by Sebastiano Benasso, Dejana Bouillet, Tiago Neves and Marcelo Parreira do Amaral, members of the CLEAR research Consortium. The edited volume explores different landscapes of Lifelong Learning (LLL) Policies, producing case-based examinations of their institutional, discursive, and relational dimensions. The book yields noteworthy insights into the widely differing realities across the European landscape, and also into the diverging ways young people deal with and actively participate in LLL policymaking.

The online presentation is open to everyone interested in educational and youth policymaking and comparative studies and we kindly invite early career researchers and young people to participate in the event and share their views, experiences, and ideas. During the online event, chaired by Sebastiano Benasso (University of Genoa), two distinguished discussants – Patricia Loncle-Moriceau (École des Hautes Études en Santé Publique) and Vitor Ferreira (University of Lisbon) – will contextualise the debate surrounding youth opportunities, skills, and lifelong learning policies and walk the readers through the book’s ambitions, challenges, and main achievements.

The book will be presented within the associated research network RYOT, which explores youth opportunities and transitions and which has been established alongside a former EU-funded research project YOUNG_ADULLLT focusing lifelong learning policies in Europe. The RYOT network seeks to foster collaboration and mutual support among early career European researchers and to strengthen their professional connections, going beyond their local and national contexts.

The online book event will take place on March 31st, 2023, from 12:30 to 14:00 pm (Central European Time) via zoom and can be entered using the following link or QR-Code:

No previous registration is needed.
