Education: International Conference on Inclusive Education


Welcome to the web page of the first International Conference on Inclusive Education under the banner of Asian Centre for Inclusive Education (ACIE) that is going to be held in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. ACIE is a joint initiative of some academics, scholars and researchers of universities and professional bodies in the Asian region. Its prime objective is to improve access to high quality education of disadvantaged children in Asian countries. The Secretarial of the Centre is currently based at the Institute of Education and Research (IER) at the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh. Different universities, professional bodies and individual scholars of Asian region are the members of ACIE. The professionals working in other countries outside Asia (e.g. Australia, Canada and the USA) who have interest in promoting inclusive education in this region are also associated with this centre. 

The aim of the conference is to get an opportunity to share and disseminate ideas, research findings, academic and field-level experiences of different countries to promote inclusive education more effectively. The following are the sub-themes that will be addressed in the conference:
