Call for Papers: September 18, 2015 – February 1, 2016
Conference: July 13 – 15, 2016 (preconference July 11 & 12, 2016)

Since November 2014, the incluD-ed Network has been working on the
pilot study “Quality Factors of Inclusive Education in Europe. An
Exploration”. The study aims to explore the quality of inclusive
processes in inclusive schools in several European countries, taking
into account elements relating to culture, policies and practices as
well as elements relating to available human and material resources.
Inclusive education, with its overall objective to meet the common and
special needs of students, is a demanding process in which these two
types of elements combine.

The pilot study will be conducted in the four European countries of
incluD-ed‘s founding members (Spain, France, Finland and the Czech
Republic) as well as in Austria, the UK, Ireland and Iceland where
incluD-ed counts with associated member organisations.
Jorge Calero Martínez, renowned expert in inclusive education from the
University of Barcelona (Spain), leads the theoretical and analytical
part of the study. incluD-ed Network expert María Antonia Casanova and
the incluD-ed Network Secretariat are responsible for validation and
practical aspects of the study such as the selection of school samples
that will respond to the study’s questionnaire. The study, under the
overall coordination of the incluD-ed leading team at Fundación ONCE,
will be the final publication of the incluD-ed Network.
