KAPTalks : Leaving no one behind in education – a focus on children with disabilities

 

On the occasion of the International Children’s Day, 20th November 2020, the online lecture will shed light on the educational situation of children with disabilities in low and middle income countries and discuss the way forward to accelerate inclusion. The event will be fully online.

 

Organized for the first time in Luxembourg by Handicap International, this conference is part of the Kapuscinski Development Lectures series and will focus on inclusive education in developing countries. The purpose of this conference is to understand how the interaction of multiple factors of exclusion (such as gender or disability), leads to increased discrimination and marginalization of children worldwide.
