Through our international work and the contacts we have, we gather knowledge and information about how other countries work with special needs education.
We work with international contacts as part of our mandate. One goal for our work is to support the development of other countries towards an equal education for all children, youths and adults, irrespective of their functional ability. Our input is based on requests, and is prioritised on the basis of the areas and countries that SIDA, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, considers to be prioritised.
Our priority areas on SIDA's website.
The European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusive Education is a network that consists of 29 European countries. Sweden is represented by SPSM. The network works to develop cooperation within the educational area and to improve the quality of special needs education in Europe. The work of the network is in line with the Council of Europe's priorities and goals for education, Education 2020, the EU's strategic framework for education cooperation.
Information about education systems and special needs education in the various member countries can be found on the European Agency's website.
