Through our country networks and expert participation in projects, we uniquely combine the perspectives of policy, practice and research. This enables us to assess, monitor and identify links between these three perspectives and develop comprehensive recommendations for policy and practice.
We give countries guidance on how to implement inclusive education, in line with the EU policies set out in the Education & Training 2020 programme as well as with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2006), from a rights and quality perspective.
We provide information to support evidence-based policy making aimed at improving the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of inclusive education systems.
Our work centres on the following key activities:
- Country review and analysis to provide information for member countries on their progress and developments in key areas relating to inclusive education
- Thematic projects focusing on priority topics identified by member countries involving national experts from all member countries
- Data collection and provision of statistics and indicators informing inclusive education
- External consultancy work such as technical support to countries in the framework of the European Commission Structural Reform Support Programme
- European hearings, conferences, thematic seminars, workshops and political events to raise awareness, share information on priority areas and facilitate networking for participants
- Disseminating information through a broad range of activities.
Information on our activities is available on this website and in printed form in various formats, such as reports, literature reviews and policy briefs. Main project outcomes and findings are available in up to 25 languages. All our materials are free to download from the Publications section of this website.
