INCLUD-ED. Strategies for inclusion and social cohesion

INCLUD-ED. Strategies for inclusion and social cohesion from education in Europe.
INTEGRATED PROJECT. Priority 7 of Sixth Framework Programme. (2006- 2011).

The Drom Kotar Mestipen Roma Women’s association contributed to the  INCLUD-ED Project, which is an Integrated Project of the priority 7, 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission. Integrated Projects integrate together the critical mass of activities and resources needed to achieve ambitious clearly defined scientific objectives structuring effect on the fabric of European research. INCLUD-ED was the only project focused on compulsory education which was selected in the last Calls for Proposals of the 6th Framework Programme.

INCLUD-ED analyses educational strategies that contribute to overcome inequalities and promote social cohesion, and educational strategies that generate social exclusion, particularly focusing on vulnerable and marginalised groups. Europe needs to identify these strategies that will in turn be used by policy makers, education managers, teachers, students and families, and contribute to shape new policies to meet the Lisbon goals. INCLUD-ED will be focused on the study of the interactions between educational systems, agents and policies, up to the compulsory level (i.e. pre-primary, primary, and secondary education, including vocational and special education programmes).
