    Abstract

    This article presents a collection of personal perspectives of three academics and one ministry official from various countries in the Asia-Pacific region, namely, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Thailand, on the importance of inclusive education. These perspectives offer an insider's understanding of the universal and country-specific contributions of inclusive education, as well as their individual visions for the future of their countries. Although discernibly different in terms of the issues raised by the authors specific to their individual countries, these perspectives, nonetheless, echo and announce the same hope and call-to build a better and more inclusive future for all in society.
