This book offers insight on the politics ofinclusion in Vietnam through a Foucauldian and post-colonial perspective ondisability and education. Drawing on a socio-historical analysis of theinclusion of disabled people in Vietnam in the twenty-first century, the bookguides readers through a ‘history of the present.’ By reflecting on thetreatment of disabled people in Vietnamese social history, the book argues thatthis journey to inclusion calls for critical reflections on the challenges andpossibilities for policies to transform exclusion for disabled people. The bookunveils the problematics of social and educational institutions in governingdisability and difference through a critical reflection on discourses and powerin the global and local juncture, in relation to its engagement with disabilityin the global South. The intersection between the global politics of disabilityrights and development and the local politics of inclusion in Vietnam shapesthe cultural politics of education. The ways inclusive education ishistorically constructed, within this socio-historical condition, reflects thechallenges of inclusive thought and action for transforming injustice. 

Going beyond ‘deconstructive politics,’ TheJourney to Inclusion argues for a re-positioning of the relationships betweenthe global North and South as an alternative approach to inclusion. It suggeststhat critical research must construct a politics of engagement with subjugatedvoices and representations in transnational, national, and local contexts. Areflexive, critical, and inclusive dialogue that engages with Southernknowledge offers a political platform for reframing justice in the twenty-firstcentury.
