In the 1990s, inclusive education was given momentum by the publication of the key recommendations from the World Conference on Special Education: Access and Quality, held in Salamanca in 1994 (UNESCO, 1994; OECD, 1997). However it is not easy to implement inclusive education and many countries meet with barriers. Many of the barriers come from the lack of collaboration and partnership between education providers, government and the community. It is the main purpose of this paper to look into the aspects of partnership development between stakeholders in inclusive education as a mean to promote the implementation of inclusive education. The roles of partnership of the government, the general public, researchers, regular schools, special schools, parents and students are discussed with reference to current researches and studies in inclusive education.
