Who We Are

Inclusion International is the international network of people with intellectual disabilities and their families advocating for the human rights of people with intellectual disabilities worldwide.  Together they agree on a Statement of Unity (SoU en Español) and are committed to progress towards inclusion International’s vision.

For over fifty years Inclusion International has been committed
to the promotion of these human rights and our organization now represents over 200 member federations in 115 countries throughout five
regions including the Middle East and North Africa, Europe, Africa, the Americas, and Asia Pacific.


A world where people with intellectual disabilities and their families can equally participate and be valued in all aspects of community life.

Mission Statement

Inclusion International will advocate for the inclusion of people with disabilities into their communities, as valued neighbours and citizens.

Strategic Plan

Inclusion International’s strategic plan for 2016-2020 is designed to:
Ensure that the voices of our members are heard in the on-going work of implementing the CRPD and in the global Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030;
Enable shared learning and collaboration throughout the network between members and allies
Support the work of members in the implementation of CRPD and inclusion in the SDGs
The human rights commitments of the CRPD combined with priorities for action in the Sustainable Devel-opment Goals provides a platform for the achievement of our vision as a global network.
