(2013) Active citizenship and late-life learning in the community

in Theory
Carmel Borg & Marvin Formosa

This paper from the University of Malta problematises dominant notions of active citizenship in later life and provides a framework for an alternative view of active citizenship. It also illustrates how adult educators can facilitate learning processes where late-life learners, reflect on the impact of the neo-liberal value system and on the consequences of its hegemonic practices on personal and community life, before engaging in transformative action.
