This report presents different models of The Learning Society, of lifelong learning and of the learning organisation, through cross-national and 'home international' comparisons. It then explores the limitations and advantages of comparative research. It will be of particular use to researchers planning international, and especially, intra-European studies.

"... should be read by all social scientists as they show how a research programme can produce a body of knowledge which has clarified and extended our understanding of what are very common yet at the same time contested debates around lifelong learning and a learning society." BSA Network "... important reading for anyone with an interest in contemporary and emergent changes to the institutions of education, and so in the purpose, distribution and practices of education and learning at this time in our histories." Studies in the Education of Adults
