This chapter argues that the global literature on community learning needs a complete reworking. Notwithstanding the limits of theory, practical application through learning centers has become one of the dominant means of addressing informal educational programs across the globe. International organizations including United Nations bodies have taken up various community learning approaches with positive dedication. The chapter assesses the relevance of the community learning and community learning centers or networks to Papua New Guinea. The country’s learning projects tend to be based on the experiences of urban settings and on modern social subjectivities that self-consciously emphasize the accumulation of more and more information.

Keywords:   global literature, community learning, community learning centers, Papua New Guinea, social subjectivities
