Dependency on Australian aid and the introduction of inclusive education initiatives in Kiribati
Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies, 2020, vol. 7, issue 1, 112-123
This study examines dependency on Australian aid in the introduction of inclusive education initiatives in the Pacific Island nation of Kiribati through data analysis of documents and individual interview responses with key stakeholders from both the recipient and donor sides. The results indicate that the catalyst for inclusive education initiatives has been Australian aid highlighting a social justice issue, namely the exclusion of children with disabilities from school programs. Australian aid has shaped policy, funded inclusive education initiatives, and directly managed the programs through the externally controlled Kiribati Education Facility. The long‐term sustainability of inclusive education initiatives is uncertain if Australian aid priorities change and funding is withdrawn.
