This module looks in depth and with a critical perspective at the key concepts, theories, aims, values, and practices involved in special and inclusive education within a variety of international socio-political and historical contexts.  The concepts of inclusion, disability, difference and diversity will be examined and a range of sometimes contradictory perspectives will be introduced, questioning to what extent these perspectives can be reconciled or not.  Understandings and provision in relation to special and inclusive education in different countries will be considered. You will be encouraged to reflect upon the development of special and inclusive education systems in their own countries as well as considering a range of international and global perspectives.
