Disability-Inclusive EiE: Key Concepts, Approaches, and Principles for Practice


This report defines and clarifies key concepts and terminology for disability-inclusive education in emergencies (EiE) and provides seven guiding principles. It is meant to be used as a companion piece to the INEE Minimum Standards and to support stakeholders' efforts to be more intentional in their design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of disability-inclusive EiE interventions. Although the principles address disability inclusion in education, many also are relevant for supporting the education of other marginalized or vulnerable learners in emergencies, including girls, refugee and displaced learners, and ethnic and linguistic minorities.

The seven guiding principles, which are based on international evidence and best practices, were designed collaboratively with diverse EiE stakeholders. They should be trialed and tested, and then iteratively adapted, contextualized, and localized as needed to fit the cultures and contexts of the communities in which learners with disabilities live and learn.
