Access to Education Over the Working Life in Sweden: Priorities, Institutions and Efficiency
2012 (English)Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
To facilitate individuals to adjust their skills to changes in market demands, Sweden has a relatively generous policy to stimulate formal adult education at the compulsory, upper secondary and tertiary levels. This paper provides an overview of what research has reported to assess if and/or how it may be an efficient use of tax payers' money. Some institutional factors are also briefly presented to discuss what is likely to be required for such a policy to exist in a particular country.
