Chapter 1: Inclusion and innovation: a call to action
Full access

Social inclusion is at the heart of sustainable development. Innovation in the ideation, development and implementation of solutions is necessary to improve social inclusion by systematically addressing the barriers that disenfranchise individuals and communities. The editors synthesize the 26 contributions in this Handbook to provide a framework for academics and policy makers to study, design and implement innovative ideas that support social inclusion. They present a future research agenda as a “call to action” for management, business and social science scholars to define questions and highlight solutions that can produce meaningful social impact.
