Organized by UNESCO on the theme of «Inclusive Education: Improving Education Policies and Systems», the conference will bring together education ministers or their representatives from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Republic of Moldova and the Russian Federation.
Discussions will centre on developing educational policies and strategies to include the most vulnerable social groups in the education system, taking regional specificities into account.
