Grant Opportunities: IRE Call for Special Issue Proposals – Adult Education, Non-formal Education, Adult Literacy

Must read

Deadline: 4-Nov-22

The International Review of Education – Journal of Lifelong Learning (IRE), the longest-running international and comparative education journal in the world, is now seeking applications to publish the best scholarship from around the world, while also influencing the development of policy and practice in the field of lifelong learning through evidence-based research.

IRE gives priority to papers on adult education, non-formal education, adult literacy, open and distance learning, vocational education, and formal education viewed through the lens of lifelong learning.


IRE currently invites proposals for guest-edited special issues on the following themes:

  • Education for sustainable development and environmental education:
    • The role of lifelong learning in addressing climate change;
    • Issues related to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, such as educational responses and challenges to the climate crisis;
    • Critical perspectives on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development;
    • Indigenous knowledge systems.
  • Global citizenship education:
    • The role of education – particularly adult and non-formal education – in fostering democratic values and supporting active civic and political awareness and engagement, locally, nationally and globally;
    • Critical studies on unequal access to civic participation, e.g. digital divide, education for migrants, refugees and internally displaced persons;
    • Critical perspectives on human rights in relation to education.
  • The future of lifelong learning:
    • The future of lifelong learning and work;
    • The impact of technological and digital developments on learning and work;
    • Ageing populations and inter-generational learning;
    • The impact of the COVID-19 crisis on learning and education (e.g. rising inequality gaps);
    • The skills agenda and democratic deficit.
  • Global governance of education:
    • The role of international organisations in shaping educational policies and discourses;
    • Shifts in global governance, e.g. private-public partnerships.

Proposals should be about two pages long, include the names of the guest editors, title, rationale and main themes of the special issue, as well as potential contributors.
