Adult Education Quarterly (AEQ) is a quarterly scholarly refereed journal committed to advancing the understanding and practice of adult and continuing education. AEQ aims to stimulate a problem-oriented, critical approach to research and practice, with an increasing emphasis on interdisciplinary and international perspectives.
This monograph is intended to illustrate the uses to which conclusions about societal influences can be put when making local planning decisions. The utility of an international perspective on the following seven decision areas is explored: planning, participation, campaigns, staffing, clientele, pluralism, and higher education.Author: Alan B.
