Transnational migration increasingly impacts lifelong learning

The growing mobility of people across national borders has resulted in demographic, social, and cultural change that creates new opportunities as well as new challenges for lifelong learning. However, there is surprisingly little research and analysis of the relations between international migration and lifelong learning. In this blog I would like to bring up some emerging issues that need to be discussed in relation to the impact of transnational migration on lifelong learning, especially in the UK context.
