The place and space of indigenous worldviews and priorities within policy and action

The International Journal of Inclusive Education will be publishing a special issue entitled, The place and space of indigenous worldviews and priorities within policy and action.

The impacts of colonisation and its theorisation create the foundation for understanding contemporary challenges that need to be addressed. This issue looks away from the much debated view that indigenous policies are to a large extent an afterthought and looks towards addressing indigenous concerns of inequity and inclusion. With these considerations in mind some suggested topics for this special issue are:

  • Policies of inclusion with indigenous people and indigeneity as the focus,
  • The practice of language and curriculum in education, health, employment, well-being, intergenerational learning,
  • Indigenous worldviews and perspectives about inclusion with a global, comparative or country specific focus,
  • Issues relevant to inclusive indigenous education from an indigenous perspective – calls for attention or action,
  • Methodologies generating resources to facilitate and support the practice of inclusion.

This special issue invites contributions from scholars and practitioners experienced in indigenous inclusion from a policy, theoretical and practical aspect.
