RELA Thematic issue: Social economy as an alternative to capitalism – Learning solidarity and autonomy - Submission deadline: 31 December 2015

The label of social economy is broad, encompassing a range of economic activities and organisations which share the attribute of NOT being driven for profit; thus social economy can be seen as an important alternative to modern capitalist production.

RELA Thematic issue: Marketization and commodification of adult education - Submission Deadline: November 30, 2015

Marketization of education is a global phenomenon (Ball, 2007; Burch, 2009) and has also gained increased research interest during the last three decades, not least in terms of research on school choice and its consequences (Lundahl et al., 2014).

Glasgow - the Nurturing City

We hear of a lot of city titles, and CR&DALL susbcribers may be interested in one of the titles used here in Glasgow - the Nurturing City. I attach my own report to the city's Children and Families Policy Development Committee, and a report of research undertaken by the University of Stirling. I look forward to your comments.
