Special Issue "Inclusive Education: International Policy and Practice"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2024 | Viewed by 1754
Inclusive education, as an overall societal and educational goal, is clearly expressed in a range of international policies and guidelines from many different organisations and stakeholders. In essence, these policies are rooted in several shared ideal elements taken from a rights perspective. These international agreements and guidelines are further expressed, in different shapes and to different extents, in national legislation and local governing documents.
However, previous research shows that, in many local and national contexts, there is a gap between policy and practice, where the ideals of inclusive education are not manifested in different educational settings. This Special Issue with the theme Inclusive Education: International Policy and Practice seeks to illuminate different aspects of the tension between international inclusive educational policy and different national and/or local educational practices. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following themes:
- The relation between international and/or national inclusive education policy and practice(s) (e.g., how international policy impacts/counteracts national practice).
- Studies examining gaps between international inclusive policy and national/local practices.
- Examples of national/local inclusive contexts: moving from international policy to national practice.
- Contradictions between international inclusive policy and national/local practice.
- Analysis of historical international policy trends in relation to inclusive education.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
