Community engagement and lifelong learning
Author: Peter Mayo

In this broad sweep, Mayo explores dominant European discourses of higher education, in the contexts of different globalisations and neoliberalism, and examines its extension to a specific region. It explores alternatives in thinking and practice including those at the grassroots, also providing a situationally grounded project of university–community engagement. Signposts for further directions for higher education lifelong learning, with a social justice purpose, are provided.

cultural engagement not only between countries but between regions within countries and “cultural development” frequently overlaps with other areas of development, for example business, industry, community and human and social capital’. She further argues that there emerges from the PURE cases both ‘a distinction but also an overlap between cultural development and cultural engagement’ of universities, and that ‘it is sometimes necessary to delve into the particular political and/or administrative concerns of individual regions’ (2010, p. 467).

91 in the context of Peace and Conflict Studies does accord better attention to ‘the local agency’, this analytic lens suffers from two serious shortcomings. First, these are mostly perceived as ‘willing local partners’ – albeit cast in a subordinate position with the international agencies setting the peace agendas – or as ‘spoilers’ referring to those who refuse to yield to the international peace agendas. Second, it tends to ‘romanticise’ the local, which entails an uncritical acceptance of everything local in the name of ‘cultural engagement’ without

Both Jenco and Godrej are concerned with how European colonialism was understood within the idioms of Chinese and Indian traditions respectively. 10 As seen especially in the formative work of Roxanne Euben, e.g. Enemy in the Mirror:  Islamic Fundamentalism and the Limits of Modern Rationalism:  A  Work of Comparative Political Theory (Princeton, NJ:  Princeton University Press, 1999).

resistant to many of his initiatives, but despite this campaigns were launched and local clubs were established. 125 Groups like the Anglo-Asian and Anglo-Caribbean Conservative Societies aimed to encourage political and cultural engagement and on some level to engender Conservative sympathies. The impact of such groups was real and meaningful; Rowe has argued that there was ‘considerable progress’ in tackling the internal racism, but as a whole their success may have been limited by the machinations of the party at a national level. 126 In particular, the Leader

emphasis seems to remain on declaratory standards, which while important can give a false promise of clarity, rather than on the shared activities normally associated with learning. Despite the work of a range of UN organisations, as well as various bilateral and multilateral bodies and programmes, opportunities for learning at the sites of abuse – and so for changes in both behaviour and understanding among those engaged in abusive relations – remain relatively unexplored. These are areas of dialogue and practical cross-cultural engagement, supported by a range of non
