    Special Issue on Economics of Education & Lifelong Learning


    Education economics or the economics of education is the study of economic issues relating to education, including the demand for education, the financing and provision of education, and the comparative efficiency of various educational programs and policies. From early works on the relationship between schooling and labor market outcomes for individuals, the field of the economics of education has grown rapidly to cover virtually all areas with linkages to education (Wikipedia).


    Lifelong learning is the "ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated" pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability, as well as competitiveness and employability (Wikipedia).


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Economics of Education & Lifelong Learning. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Education as an investment
    • Demand for education
    • Supply of education
    • Human capital and rates of return
    • Financing Education and Lifelong learning
