Social inclusion matters to ending extreme poverty because some groups are over-represented among the extreme poor and it matters to creating shared prosperity because growth can leave some people behind.
With social inclusion being a central tenet in the World Bank’s twin goals, this Davos-style round-table discussion brought together policy makers, activists, academics and World Bank managers for a discourse about what inclusion means in the context of development, why it matters, and what can we do to achieve it. An accompanying art exhibit put a human touch on the conversation by bringing voices of the excluded through art, videos, and testimonials.
