Pursuing the Road of Lifelong Learning in the Journey of Educational success:
A Comparative Study of the Educational Biographies of Women in leading positions in Ethiopia and Germany
This study is about the lifelong learning processes of influential / leading women in Ethiopia and Germany, and intends to find systematic structures and features of successful learning biographies of women. What is of interest are a) the intricate ways in which individual women with successful learning biographies invest their energy and time in lifelong learning, i.e. in school, higher education and - what is of special interest here - in adult and continuing education; and b) how they were supported by social networks and the educational infrastructure, which helped them to stay motivated, find ways to overcome difficulties, manage challenges and failures, and end up effectively. A further question is whether there are structural analogies in the educational biographies of successful women in Ethiopia and Germany. The objective of the study - an instance of the biographical approach -is pursued by comparative analysis, which is based on in-depth interviews in both countries and on the evaluation of relevant literature.
Keywords: Influential/leading Women, lifelong learning, success, structural analogies, biographical approach, and comparative analysis
