Can social inclusion be defined independently of social exclusion?

Peter Clutterbuck and Marvyn Novick, in their paper, "Building Inclusive Communities: Cross-Canada Perspectives and Strategies", prepared for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and The Laidlaw Foundation in 2003, state the findings from community soundings they conducted as part of the Inclusive Communities Canada project.

The following are characteristics of socially inclusive communities according to these soundings:

  • Integrative and cooperative – inclusive communities bring people together and are places where people and organizations work together.
  • Interactive – inclusive communities have accessible community spaces and open public places as well as groups and organizations that support social interaction and community activity, including celebrating community life.
  • Invested – inclusive communities are places where both the public and private sectors commit resources for the social and economic health and well-being of the whole community.
  • Diverse -- inclusive communities welcome and incorporate diverse people and cultures into the structures, processes and functions of daily community life.
  • Equitable – inclusive communities make sure that everyone has the means to live in decent conditions (i.e. income supports, employment, good housing) and the opportunity to develop one’s capacities and to participate actively in community life.
  • Accessible and Sensitive – inclusive communities have an array of readily available and accessible supports and services for the social, health, and developmental needs of their populations and provide such supports in culturally sensitive and appropriate ways (essential services identified include good schools, recreation, childcare, libraries, public transit, affordable housing and supportive housing, home care, crisis and emergency supports, well coordinated and comprehensive settlement supports).
  • Participatory – inclusive communities encourage and support the involvement of all their members in the planning and decision-making that affect community conditions and development, including having an effective voice with senior levels of government.
  • Safe – inclusive communities ensure both individual and broad community safety and security so that no one feels at risk in their homes or moving around the neighbourhood and city.


I would say that the relocaiton of Five Civilized Tribes was a case of naked notorious social exclusion. any other similar cases. Jackzhp 15:36, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

It was primarily an economic exclusion, IMHO. Guido den Broeder (talk) 09:22, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Merging with Marginalization[edit]

Well, since the template suggesting that this article should be merged with marginalization has been here since 22 February and nobody has protested I will do it now. Åkebråke (talk) 14:24, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Major edits and cleanup[edit]

Hello all,

I've gone through the entire article and made significant edits that I believe make the piece more usable. I will use parts of it for a handout I'm giving out to students for a lecture, and I think it will meet that purpose. I think the tone is now more scientific / encyclopedic, and lots of the repetition has been removed. Tarek (talk) 09:33, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Merge with exclusion proposal[edit]

agree --Penbat (talk) 19:54, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Also agree —AeroNHZach (talk) 02:56, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose These are both valid topics in their own right. It's been long enough since that tag was added, the editor who added it has never weighed in here (nor contributed to the project in the last seven months), so I propose we remove the tag now. Jojalozzo (talk) 03:37, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Removed factual errors[edit]

I have just removed the vandalistic edits that were made by Ravishyam_Bangalore to this article, although I am amazed that no one else ever reviewed those edits. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 17:47, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
