While resource provision is widely recognized as an essential element of successful inclusive education, this is the first time an entire book has been dedicated to the topic. In this volume leading experts address international perspectives on funding models, the role of resources, and the
development of professionals for the implementation of effective inclusive education.
Split into two parts, the first section of the book addresses funding challenges that have emerged following the implementation of an inclusive school system. The authors present a broad range of international perspectives on different funding models and collate evidence from a variety of countries.
They also unearth a variety of perceptions regarding resourcing for successful implementation of inclusive education. In the second part of the book, the authors focus on international perspectives of teacher training and professional development for inclusive education, ranging from early childhood
education to post-secondary teacher training.
Providing critical information and empirical studies, valuable to all of those engaged in the endeavour of providing adequate resources to support inclusive education, this volume is of interest to education policy makers, school and system leaders, and economists.
The Bologna Process is one of the most well-known and influential European projects for cooperation in the field of higher education. Through an in-depth examination of higher education actors and policy instruments in the case of the implementation of Bologna in Ukraine, this book aims to analyse
the process of the Bologna reform in Ukraine and investigate Bologna as a case of Europeanisation in the post-Soviet context.
Collating findings that suggest that the Bologna reform in Ukraine has been developing primarily as an interrelationship between policy continuity and change, the author demonstrates how the old practices and new innovations in Bologna have experienced a layered interaction and a form of policy
learning by which the old and new intertwine. Viewing this process as a gradual, somewhat messy and creative build-up of minor innovations by different higher education actors, this book showcases how the accumulation of these innovations led to more fundamental changes, and the beginning of the
emergence of a more shared method of higher education policy-making in contrast to the previously centrally governed Ukraine. In turn shedding light on the broader process of Europeanisation in the post-Soviet context, this book reveals a process by which change and the continuity are not mutually
exclusive, but rather closely interconnected.
Understanding National Culture and Ethics in Organizations: A Study of Eastern and Central Europe explores the nexus between ethics and national culture, with a special focus on Eastern European countries. Understanding the nuances of these cultural differences as well as different perceptions of
business ethics allows a finer understanding of the differences in business styles between Western and Eastern European countries.
Intended primarily for managers, ethics and intercultural management scholars and business owners, this book reveals some leading questions in business research, linking ethics and national culture, with a particular emphasis on Eastern European countries. The main questions that should be answered
are: 'Which are the cultural particularities in Eastern European countries?' & 'What is the relationship between ethics and national culture in Eastern European countries?' and 'How to be successful in business in Eastern European countries?'
The volume’s approach to culture and ethics leads to unique and new perspectives on the Eastern part of Europe. By improving our understanding of the relationship between business ethics and national culture, the book contributes to the integration of theories, concepts and results from
different research traditions and in this way helps to better our understanding of management.
