Publications and Documents
Publications are part of the process of information exchange and publicity within the NFE movement. The Working Group on Non-Formal Education Newsletter has contributions relating to activities in several countries, as well as regional and international activities involving African countries. The group also circulates reports, technical papers and information documents. Papers and articles posted here are meant to stimulate debate, enrich research and possibly jump-start meaningful initiatives - with the explicit intention of promoting discussion. They are not a reflection of an academic standpoint of the ADEA WGNFE.
