Intergovernmental Conference on ” Quality and inclusion in education: the unique role of language” - Strasbourg, 18-19 September 2013

This event was an opportunity for those responsible for education policies or for curriculum development (of any school subject) to discuss the role of languages in preventing failure at school, and to contribute to furthering quality and inclusion in education.
National representatives were nominated by the national education authorities.
