This special issue explores a variety of learning and educational strategies, their local meanings and relevance, and how these articulate with livelihood options within changing politico-economic conditions. By considering diverse ethnographic contexts and a multitude of educational and work environments, the papers bring into dialogue various anthropological themes on learning, education and apprenticeship, forms of capital, and the effects of global processes on the relationship between education, livelihood and social mobility.
