This handbook examines policy and practice from around the world with respect to broadly conceived notions of inclusion and diversity within education. It sets out to provide a critical and comprehensive overview of current thinking and debate around aspects such as inclusive education rights, philosophy, context, policy, systems, and practices for a global audience. This makes it an ideal text for researchers and those involved in policy-making, as well as those teaching in classrooms today. Chapters are separated across three key parts:

Part I: Conceptualizations and Possibilities of Inclusion and Diversity in Education
Part II: Inclusion and Diversity in Educational Practices, Policies, and Systems
Part III: Inclusion and Diversity in Global and Local Educational Contexts
