Beskrivning av samhällsfrågan

Exclusion and marginalisation are challenges across the globe. How can we work for inclusion in different contexts, from international support to fragile states to integration work in Sweden? Can Agenda 2030 – intended to "leave no one behind" – lead us further in the quest for inclusive societies?

Utökad beskrivning av samhällsfrågan

Exclusion can have devastating impacts on societies, especially where youth experience structural barriers to participation. While radicalization leading to violent extremism poses a growing threat in many African countries, inequalities, marginalization and integration challenges create instability also in Sweden. Within the peacebuilding field inclusive approaches have long been considered crucial for sustaining peace. The value of inclusion has now made it to the very core of global development policy, as Agenda 2030 deliberately targets all segments of society with goals such as inclusive education, inclusive growth, inclusive industrialisation, inclusive cities, and – in more overarching terms – goal 16 for peaceful and inclusive societies. Will this universal Agenda, adopted by all nation states, make a difference to inclusivity efforts around the world? Are there universally applicable principles that can guide us in understanding and addressing marginalisation and exclusion?
