While it is axiomatic that contextual differences between educational jurisdictions and regions means that inclusive education will be defined and enacted in distinctive ways in different arenas, the principle of education as a human right, a universal entitlement that belongs to each and every person without discrimination, reflects a universal value that transcends contextual differences. This chapter considers the role that teacher education can play to ensure that teachers in different jurisdictions can meet the challenges of inclusive education despite the distinctive barriers imposed by structural differences between national systems that can obscure commonalities.
