Social inclusion has become a major part of the policy discourse in Australia and elsewhere.
But:
- what does it mean to be included?
- how do you tell whether someone is included or excluded, and from what?
- how does 'social inclusion' make space for difference: of culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ability and so much more?
- does everyone have to be included? What is the relationship between inclusion, resistance and dissent?

Keynote speakers include:
- Professor Anver Saloojee
Dept of Politics and Public Administration, Ryerson University, Canada
- Professor Andrew Mason
Centre for Citizenship and Democracy, University of Southampton
- Professor Aafke Komter
Chair of Comparative Studies of Social Solidarity, University of Utrecht
- Professor Raphael Liogier
Institut d'etudes politiques d'Aix-en-Provence and Director, Observatoire du religieux
