Summary

This review lays the foundations for further analysis of the wider benefits of learning by bringing together diverse strands, some theoretical, some empirical. Part A describes the origins and the scope of the work of the Centre, both generally and with respect to different quantitative and qualitative approaches to modelling and measuring. Part B provides a selective overview of each of five overlapping social domains - and models employed to analyse them - in the context of their relations to learning. The domains are Health, Ageing, Families, Crime and Citizenship. Part C presents an outline of possible directions for further research, picking up on selected methodological issues raised and their implications.
