Abstract: Social inclusion is an imperative that all democratic States should strive to achieve, including by the establishment of actions and structures which promote an order and environment that is characterised by social inclusion.

This conference will discuss both the top level constitutional and human rights framework in which social inclusion is promoted, and more specific legal issues and problems related to social inclusion/exclusion.

It will discuss problems, opportunities and challenges resulting from the changing landscape in general and then zoom in on specific issues that arise with respect to the promotion of social inclusion and consider possible ways forward. Specific issues are likely to cover / be related to one or more of the causes of social exclusion, for example: unemployment, financial hardship, poverty, discrimination on grounds of sex, race, ethnic origin, religion, sexuality, age; education/skills, housing, crime, e.g. hate crime, offender rehabilitation; migration, health and access to social care.... They may also relate to the tools and procedures available to individuals and charities, e.g. access to justice and representation of claims.
