Abstract

Is the global discourse on adult education Eurocentric? There are diverse forms of Indigenous and local practices of adult education that have emerged and existed in different parts of the world over the course of time. This chapter elaborates on the significance of bringing good practices of adult education from Global South into the mainstream notion of adult and lifelong learning. Through this chapter, we aim to create a bridge between different notions and perspectives of adult education across the globe by highlighting practices and ideas emerging from the Global South. This chapter addresses what decolonising adult education means for the researchers, practitioners, adult educators and learners. It draws on post-colonial and Indigenous theory, within the paradigm of adult education by including perspectives from various scholars such as Freire, Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Gandhi, Tagore, Ngugi WaThiong’o, Edward Said, and others.
