The symposium at the University of Vienna gives insights into main findings from research conducted by INEDIS in Ethiopia. It provides the opportunity to share practical experience of inclusion in higher education institutions.

The overall objective of INEDIS is to strengthen capacity building at higher education institutions (HEI) to facilitate inclusive education for students with disabilities at university level and strengthen the ability of HEI to contribute to inclusive community and school development with a special focus on the intersection of gender and disability.

In the past three years three Ethiopian universities and the University of Vienna have closely worked together to undertake research, write guidelines, organize trainings, develop curricula and create awareness at higher education institutions.

In the framework of this symposium their findings and experiences will be presented and discussed.

Date: 29th of August 2019, 9 am - 5 pm
