The aim of this chapter is to examine the relationship between lifelong learning systems and the wider socio-economic context in which they are located at national and European levels. It considers the growth of economic inequality across much of Europe, which has coincided with the emergence of the knowledge economy. In addition the relationship between national typologies of welfare and lifelong learning are explored, and it is argued that these are closely aligned.

Keywords:   Inequality, Knowledge economy, Typologies of welfare, Typologies of lifelong learning
