Inclusive Education: The Way of the Future

48th session of the International Conference on Education, Geneva, 25-28 November 2008

The International Conference on Education is a major international forum for education policy dialogue among Ministers of Education and other stakeholders (researchers, practitioners, representatives of intergovernmental organizations and civil society).

 

The theme of the 48th session of the ICE is “Inclusive Education: the Way of the Future” and it will be held in November 2008 in Geneva. It is organized by the International Bureau of Education (IBE), the UNESCO institute specializing in assisting Member States to achieve quality Education for All through innovative curriculum development and implementation.

 

It is expected that this conference will enrich the debates about the concept of inclusive education, look more carefully into the role of governments in the development and the implementation of policies on inclusive education, draw attention to education systems that offer opportunities for life-long learning and emphasize the role of teachers to meet the learners’ diverse expectations and needs.
