This research project defines ‘globalization' as the movement of ‘people', ‘resources', ‘money' and ‘ideas' beyond the national boundaries, and aims to clarify how such a globalization changes the traditional values and cultures peculiar in the various communities, and how people living there react those changes, and how they recreate them as learning problems.
In 2003 fiscal year, the members of our project gave the "Keynote Proposal" to Japan Society for the Study of Adult and Community Education special symposium in celebration of its 50^<th> annual national conference and held a symposium in Kyoto University and discussed the way of the collaboration of our research. At the same time, each of the members carried out the research in USA, China, Korea, and Taiwan.
In 2004 fiscal year, in order to clarify the substantial impact of the globalization to the change of the practice in community education by analyzing the educational content and method, we carried out the on-site research in Thailand, China, Korea and Taiwan, as well as research of literature on this subject. In the meetings for the study which were held five times in Tokyo and Kyoto, we discussed result of the research and found that the common subjects (labor, health, welfare, peace, ecology, gender, sexuality, information technology, population problem) are appearing and being reestablished as learning problems in community education in these areas beyond the national boundaries.
The result of the research project was arranged in the final report.
