Kapuscinski Development Lecture: ‘Leaving no one behind in education – a focus on children with disabilities’

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.

This conference is in line with the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 agenda of the United Nations. In particular, SDG number 4, which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and to promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. However, ten years before the 2030 deadline, children with disabilities are still largely excluded from education and, consequently, from life opportunities.

It is time to implement concrete actions that put the child at the centre and to adopt a multisectoral approach, recognizing that the realization of children's rights and their well-being is a matter of shared responsibility.

Kapuscinski Development Lecture: ‘Leaving no one behind in education – a focus on children with disabilities’

Organisée pour la première fois au Luxembourg par Handicap International, cette conférence s’inscrit dans la série des Kapuscinski Development Lectures et sera consacrée au thème de l’éducation inclusive dans les pays en développement. L’objectif de cette conférence est de comprendre comment l'interaction de multiples facteurs d'exclusion (comme le genre ou le handicap), entraîne une augmentation de la discrimination et de la marginalisation des enfants dans le monde.

Cette conférence s’inscrit dans les Objectifs De Développement Durable et l’agenda 2030 des Nations Unies. Plus particulièrement l’ODD numéro 4 qui souhaite, d’ici 2030, assurer une éducation de qualité inclusive et équitable et de promouvoir des opportunités d'apprentissage tout au long de la vie pour tous. Cependant, à dix ans de l'échéance de 2030, les enfants handicapés sont encore largement exclus de l'éducation et, par conséquent, des opportunités de la vie.

Il est temps de mettre en œuvre des actions concrètes qui placent l'enfant au centre et d'adopter une approche multisectorielle, en reconnaissant que la réalisation des droits des enfants et leur bien-être est une question de responsabilité partagée.
