Inclusive Education in Bulgaria and Bosnia and Herzegovina: Policy and Practice
Tsokova, Diana; Becirevic, Majda
European Journal of Special Needs Education, v24 n4 p393-406 Nov 2009
This paper examines developments in inclusive education in Bulgaria (BG) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) in the context of actual and desired accession to the European Union respectively. It seeks to provide insights into the national special education traditions in these countries and aims to establish how these have influenced current developments in inclusive education together with and alongside powerful external change agents. This research focuses on policy makers' perspectives on changes associated with inclusion. There are significant similarities in the way inclusive education reforms are being perceived and implemented in both countries, and analysis suggests there is a strong need for regional co-operation with shifts in both policy and practice. (Contains 2 tables.)
