Individual Learning Accounts (ILAs) represent a new tenet of the European's Lifelong Learning Strategy. They pretend to be an innovatory response to the problem of adult participation in training, solving the dilemma between efficiency and equity. The underlying rationale of ILAs relies on the Social Active Welfare State and the principle of "empowerment". Three ILAs are examined, in the United States, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Despite that ILAs share these theoretical and political basements, their concrete patterns and their goals (explicit or implicit) appear quite different. The analysis of their implementation and their (partially) assessed outcomes, can be useful to understand more recent device such as the French "Droit Individuel à la Formation".
