This session will provide an overview of the findings, principles and policies discussed in the 2020 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) report. The report has successfully identified the elements that can unify the many sectors and systems to strengthen and maintain inclusive education. Promoting inclusive schools is not a new goal, as policymakers, practitioners and researchers have sought to include students with learning disabilities and to help others overcome the barriers of hunger, poverty, infectious diseases and discrimination. However, the GEM report has underlined the inequalities laid bare by Covid 19 crisis and collated the responses of countries in a new country policy database.
