Inclusive education is a global paradigm implemented across a range of different local contexts. Inclusion is a manifold concept with several and ambiguous meanings. This article is based on a yearlong research project in Guatemala and Malawi and is exploring the question: What are the specifics of inclusive education in so-called developing countries at the example of Guatemala and Malawi. After a theoretical embedding we are presenting the research results on the above mentioned question. The results bring forth tensions in the concept and implementation of inclusive education.
