This chapter provides a chance to reflect on the significance of the 42 country/regional descriptions and analyses of later life learning/education. It is deliberately entitled “Concluding remarks”, as opposed to “Conclusions”, to indicate that this is essentially an exercise using a problematizing approach (Freire 1984). This is a place for observation and critique of patterns related to later life learning. It is not a place, as post-modernists remind us, to espouse “grand narratives” on the state of older adult education globally but to examine some of the key dynamics at play in interrogating its character.
