Accessibility Statement

The International Standing Conference for the History of Education (ISCHE) is committed to offering an accessible environment for all.

As an international organization that meets in many different locales, ISCHE faces the challenges of following local laws and customs while honoring the expectations that people bring from their own communities. We encourage dialogue and creative problem solving on the part of Local Organizing Committees and participants to ensure more inclusive environments for all of our participants.

In line with the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, ISCHE strives to be accessible to all by accommodating the needs of registered participants in annual meetings as well as ISCHE regional meetings and workshops.   At a minimum, ISCHE will comply with the disability laws in the country or jurisdiction within which the ISCHE event is being held and, whenever possible, will go above and beyond these requirements to enhance the conference experience for all attendees.

Requests for accommodating individual needs for ISCHE conferences, meetings and workshops will be included in the registration form. A member of the Local Organizing Committee may be identified as the Accessibility Contact Person to help manage accommodations. ISCHE holds accommodation requests and supporting documents confidential.
