Abstract

Adult education in post-independence developing countries resides within the context of national and local conditions which are connected to the legacy of colonialism. Adult education has been an integral part of development and decolonization in these countries and post-colonialism provides a valuable theoretical frame for adult education researchers working in these contexts.
