INCLUD-ED aimed at enlightening the question about how education can contribute to social cohesion in the context of the knowledge-based society. The project has focused on explaining educational actions that can influence school failure or success at the level of compulsory education (pre-primary, primary, and secondary education, including vocational and special education programmes within regular schools) and their relationship to other areas of society (e.g. housing, health, employment, social and political participation), particularly focusing on social groups that are vulnerable to be socially excluded (youth, migrant, cultural groups e.g. Roma, women and people with disabilities).
