The Atlantic Human Rights Centre (AHRC) has identified equality, diversity, and inclusion, as areas of programmatic focus. The AHRC in conjunction with St. Thomas University will host a conference to address these issues by bringing together researchers, academics, students, education administrators, NGO’s and government representatives from the regional, national and international community. Together they will discuss normative developments, best practice policies and challenges involving inclusion theory and application within the public school, university and community college education sectors. The focus will be on the deconstruction and reconstruction of ‘inclusion’ and how this concept interacts with human rights and citizenship responsibilities and obligations.
The conference will feature keynote and plenary speeches from academics and policy makers, a workshop, and presentations from practitioners and researchers.
If you are interested in presenting at this conference, please submit an abstract to Marc Gionet, firstname.lastname@example.org by February 6th, 2012.
This Conference will take place June 14th- 16th, 2012 at St. Thomas University.
