The Forum for Research into Equality and Diversity will be running a 2 hour seminar exploring perceptions of inclusion from the perspectives of India and England. There will be references made to the policy, contexts - social, cultural and political contexts that influences these perceptions. Examples from practice as well as discourses related to inclusion will be discussed and analysed. We would like our audience to interact with us to explore this elusive concept through critically analysing literature and policy from India and England.
