Excerpt from conference description :

There is a great deal of interest among policy-makers and analysts in the concepts of social inclusion and social exclusion in Canada.

The plenary sessions and workshops by public policy experts and researchers address the following questions: What do these concepts mean? How do we move from experiences of exclusion to a vision of inclusion? What would a national policy agenda and politics based on social inclusion look like? What are the civic dimensions of social inclusion? How does social inclusion complement and strengthen recognition, rights and citizenship? And how can we secure the social inclusion of children and families through policies, practices and participation in areas such as labour market, economic security, child development and child care, recreation and public education, and community participation?
