Throughout the book we engage with lifelong learning as a site for struggle. In its final section we confront our own struggles, raise questions and suggest some answers, although we also invite our readers to search for answers and raise questions of their own. Whilst our own voices have been explicit throughout the book, we have aimed also to give space for our readers’ voices, looking for the silences and gaps in the book, as well as within lifelong learning policies and practices. We hope the book is a conversation that can be continued with us and without us: a conversation between those to whom lifelong learning matters.
