The present report synthesises the main findings of “INCLUD-ED: Strategies for Inclusion and Social Cohesion in Europe from Education (2006-2011)”. INCLUD-ED main objective has been to analyse educational strategies that contribute to social cohesion and educational strategies that lead to social exclusion, in the context of the European knowledge-based society, providing key elements and action lines to improve educational and social policy. To achieve this objective, actions in education have been studied in pre-primary, primary and secondary education, vocational training and special education programmes in regular schools, as well as their connection to other areas of society – employment, housing, health, social and political participation. Particular attention has been paid to the way these actions affect the processes of inclusion and exclusion of five vulnerable groups: migrants, cultural minorities, women, youth and people with disabilities.
