Dr Susie Miles

My research is focused on one of the greatest challenges facing world education systems, that of finding ways of including all children. Through the work of the Enabling Education Network (EENET), which I helped to create in 1997, the University of Manchester has become the worlds hub for communicating evidence from research and development projects in inclusive education in developing countries.
