The report points out that excluded groups exist in all countries, but that change toward social inclusion is possible and attainable with concerted policy effort. It is intended for anyone who is curious about social inclusion in a world that is witness to intense demographic, spatial, economic and technological transitions. These transitions are spurred, inter alia, by waves of migrations, urbanization, climate change, shifts in technology, aging in some places and youth bulges in others.
“Inclusion Matters” is a symbol of the new direction at the World Bank and has generated wide-ranging interest among a diverse audience.
