The preconference, June 20., is a research conference reserved for presentations of research papers relevant to the conference topic. Messages from the presented research will contribute to the basis of knowledge needed for workshops and panel debates for the next two days of the conference.

The conference will consist of keynote speech(es), a presentation of a research report on children with disabilities in Tanzania, workshops in mixed groups focusing on children with disabilities, and a panel debate about how research-based knowledge and suggestions for improvement can be practically implemented. Among the keynote speakers are representatives of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and representatives from Unicef Tanzania.
