Diversity and Inclusion

Educating for diversity and inclusion

Our research examines how systems, institutions, educators and communities recognise and respond to diversity through ethical, socially-just and evidence-informed practices.

Our Focus

Inclusive education is central to building a democratic and cohesive society.

Our research focuses on the experience of people from Indigenous, differently-abled, migrant, refugee and disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our society has become superdiverse, and is made up of a complex mix of people from different cultures, beliefs, languages and identities. We seek to understand the implications of this superdiversity for policy and our education systems, and to support educational reform.

Our work is designed to empower teachers, school leaders and policy makers to tackle disadvantage, identify areas that require reform and to create conditions for life-long learning.

Global Critical Conversations

Our series of Global Critical Conversations welcomes a line-up of distinguished scholars, educators and industry representatives to share their insights and engage in dialogue.

In a recent panel discussion we explored the question "Can educational inclusion, equity and excellence co-exist?".
