Partners of the Strategies for Inclusion project met in The Hague on 16-17 January to assess progress made so far and to review results on the work done with intellectual outputs of the project. Each partner has been working with intellectual outputs that help to make history and citizenship education more inclusive.

First phase of the project, including needs assessment study and collection of existing Resources, is almost done, and first results will be published online soon.

Needs assessment study to find out about the barriers to high-quality history and citizenship education has been conducted by EuroClio Ambassador Manuela Carvalho from School cluster Montemor-o-Velho. In the next stage each partner sets up local focus group interviews to further discuss and assess findings of the study. Based on the results of the needs assessment, the Dutch partner Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences will write policy recommendations.

Collection of existing resources, which EuroClio member CIVITAS from Armenia is coordinating, is finished and partners have written summary reports of the most useful resources. This selection of existing resources will be made available on EuroClio website soon.

Project Managers Judith Geerling and Aysel Gojayeva also updated partners on the development of educational materials made by Special Interest Group members. Finally, partners tested the interview form for collection of practices designed by EuroClio. Next, each partner will conduct interviews to collect useful inclusive practices.
