04 SES 08 A, Case Studies of Inclusion in Central Asia
This paper will present an overview of the forthcoming book that has the working title, 'Case Studies of Inclusion in Central Asia'. The projects that form the basis of the case studies were supported by the Open Society Foundation in part to fill the gap in the research literature on inclusion in this part of the world. Six case studies, two each in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, will be briefly described, together with the methodological and logistical challenges of carrying out this research. The six case studies provide snapshots of the classrooms and communities as they exist now. The messages that emerge from the case studies provide answers to many of the questions about progress and barriers on the road to inclusive education. They paint a picture of the evolving understanding of disability, education, and society in Central Asia that is similar to the path that many Western countries have already walked, but is also specific to the cultures and history of the region. This overview will set the scene for the more detailed case studies that will follow.
