At the ‘Pushing Boundaries in Advocacy for Inclusion’ conference, organised on 29 January by the Liliane Foundation, the Dutch Coalition on Disability and Development and the ASCL, over 200 professionals, activists, policy makers, media and academics exchanged knowledge, experiences and insights on advocacy for inclusion.
