Abstract:

A literature review of Venezuela’s El Sistema network and Sistema-inspired programmes that sees deprivation as a cultural-economic problem that can be addressed through music education as a vehicle for social action.

The first edition of this literature review, undertaken in 2013, encompassed a wide range of published, peer- reviewed and non-peer-reviewed, and ‘grey’ (self-documented reports) literature. the aim of this revised second edition was to update the original review, adding published peer-reviewed articles as well as reports in the public domain. the sources included in the second edition were limited to those in English. thus, a limited additional body of literature has been incorporated into this revised version of the 2013 edition of our literature review.

For both editions, they searched electronic databases including the British Education Index, the Australian Education Index, eriC, the Web of science, the Arts and humanities Citation index, Jstor and Dissertations Direct.
