Governance Inclusive Education

Project Details


All European countries have signed the UNCRPD (UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities) and, as a result, they are challenged to “develop an inclusive education system at all levels” (Art. 24). The Strategic Partnership
GovInEd - Governance In(clusive) Education - aims to foster the dialogue between European countries on educational reforms towards inclusion, change-management strategies, the structure and constellations of actors in the governance systems and their role for an inclusive education reform and to increase the quality and coherence of governance in inclusive education reforms in European countries. The activities during the 36 months of the project - the multilevel communities of practice in selected regions, the research, the transnational meetings, the intellectual outputs, the multiplier events - will lead to an improvement of transnational, inter-level and inter-actor cooperation in the field of educational governance of inclusive education reforms. The goal is to empower and professionalize relevant agents and stakeholders in the European education systems, to enact reforms towards an inclusion reform by understanding the means of efficient and effective governance strategies and benefitting from a greater awareness of the challenges and options and underlying obstacles in the governance of the whole system.
