With the input of many INEE members, INEE’s Task Team on Inclusive Education and Disability developed this tool as a quick reference guide to help practitioners make sure that education in emergencies is accessible and inclusive for everyone, particularly those who have been traditionally excluded from education.
This guide is aimed at anyone working to provide, manage or support education services in emergencies and complements the INEE Minimum Standards. It complements the INEE Minimum Standards for Education: Preparedness, Response, Recovery (INEE Minimum Standards), particularly the crosscutting issues reflected within them. These relate to human and children’s rights, gender, HIV/AIDS, disability and vulnerability.
The Pocket Guide to Inclusive Education outlines useful principles for an inclusive education approach in emergencies and provides advice for planning, implementing and monitoring. The guide also looks at the issue of resistance to inclusion, and highlights ways in which organisations can support their emergency staff to develop more inclusive education responses.
