Perspectives on Policy and Practice in Access in Sweden

Ossiannilsson, Ebba LU (2003) 11th Scottish Forum on Lifelong Learning In [Host publication title missing]
Abstract
Adult education (vuxenutbildning) in Sweden is extensive and based on a long and strong tradition (more than 100 years). The Swedish strategy has for long time been education for everyone and it has been a conscious concentration that education is a way to strengthen and increase democracy and equality. Responsibility and decision making is carried out by institutions, municipalities and local organisations. Several initiatives has been taken during the years. In 2001 we got a new Government Bill, The Open University (Den Öppna Högskolan 2001/02:15) where the Swedish Netuniversity, the Delegation for widening recruitment and the Delegation for Validation play an important role to increase adults into higher education.
