Transnational mobility undertaken for learning purposes remains in many ways a curiously under-researched phenomenon, both from a pedagogical and a sociological angle. The report focuses on learning mobility in mobility schemes outside the European action programmes (the Comenius, Grundtvig and Leonardo da Vinci-strands of the Lifelong Learning Programme and the Youth in Action Programme), and it complements a similar study on mobility in higher education.
