The over-arching theme of this book is that social, political, economic and cultural contexts play a central role in determining whether or not inclusive education is implemented in a range of regions and countries around the world. A series of original and provocative conclusions is presented, such as:

This major landmark resource is suitable for educational policy makers, researchers, teacher educators, students and international agencies with interests in education.
