Policies and practices of inclusive education in Finland and China



Main topics: JoLII, Webinar series “Dialogues on education and society”

Children with disabilities are often overlooked in policymaking, denying them the chance to equality in daily life - whether that be financially, socially, or politically. Inclusive education strives to bridge that gap and to equip the estimated 240 million children with disabilities worldwide with the same access to education that any other child would have. With the help of two experts in the field, the 12th webinar of the GINTL-JoLII webinar series "Dialogues on Education and Society" invites the audience to reconsider education as they know it and to imagine how much more inclusive that education could still be.
