"We have long known from research in rich countries that education promotes democratic citizenship. This valuable study shows how informal literacy training plays a similar role in a poor country, surpassing even the impacts of formal schooling, especially among women. Strongly recommended for social scientists, educationist and development practitioners alike." - Michael Bratton, University Distinguished Professor of Political Science and African Studies, Michigan State University
This book examines the role of non-formal education (NFE) in promoting democracy in Senegal.
