Chris Duke reports in his summary on the most significant points of discussion, topics and outcomes of the Beijing conference. It was a celebration, but also a time to take stock and develop ideas for the future. Where does adult education stand after CONFINTEA and EFA? Has progress been made? Using the example of the partnership between ASPBAE and the IIZ/DVV, Duke explores the meaning of international cooperation. What is its basis, what are its results, and what can be learnt from this partnership for the future? Chris Duke was Secretary General until 1985, having previously been Secretary Treasurer and then for a short period President as ASPBAE evolved. Professor Duke is Director of Community and Regional Partnerships at RMIT University Bundoora, Australia and Director, Higher Education for NIACE, England and Wales from the Australian/Asian end.
