Global Policy Processes: Disability and Inclusive Education
Given that policies, programmes, and research focusing on disability in relation to other forms of disadvantage has never been higher on the agenda, it is an opportune moment to identify how new evidence being generated can inform policy and practices locally, nationally, and internationally. This working paper is a reflection on the lessons learned from the work on disability and education issues under the aegis of the Impact Initiative. It also captures insights and quotes from education policy actors and researchers who were brought together in a webinar in September 2020 to discuss what it means to work in partnership with multiple stakeholders on global policy processes related to disability and inclusive education.
Covid-19: Education Research Impact
The effects of Covid-19 have been far reaching. Beyond being a recognised global health emergency, it has wide-ranging effects on children’s schooling around the world. This paper draws on lessons from a webinar organised by the Impact Initiative that explored how researchers need to think differently about impact for education policy and practice in the context of Covid-19. It provides insights from education policy actors and researchers on how they are adapting their thinking on the types of impact that can be achieved in the context of Covid-19.
