Social Inclusion in Public Policy

Social Inclusion in Public Policy

Social inclusion is critical to achieving good policy in all sectors, not just those dealing with social development. UNESCO has developed tools and platforms to promote inclusive policy practices including the UNESCO Analytical Framework for Inclusive Policy Design and the Inclusive Policy Lab.

In 2014 UNESCO Offices in Jakarta and Bangkok started a series of consultation around strengthening capacities for inclusive policy design leading to the release of two reports and a partnership with the Government of Malaysia through the Malaysian Funds-in-Trust to support a pilot project on building capacities with pilots in Malaysia (focused on science and technology), Timor Leste (focused on disability and Cambodia (focused on disability). The findings from the consultations and pilots can be found in the following reports:

Additional projects are currently being implemented on disability by the offices in Apia and Jakarta, internal migration by Bangkok and New Delhi, and ageing in Beijing.
