Social Inclusion: Societal & Organizational Implications for Information Systems

  • General Chair: Julie Kendall
  • Program Chairs: Debra Howcroft and Eileen Trauth
  • Organizing Chairs: Tom Butler  and Brian Fitzgerald

The expression social exclusion is widely deployed in debates that refer to changes in society which have consequences for individuals and collectivities who are excluded from various processes such as: participation in decision-making and political procedures, access to employment and material resources, and integration into common cultural processes.  Contemporary debates about social exclusion identify information as a key dimension of poverty, and digital exclusion as a problem.  As the IS field broadens to embrace wider concerns that go beyond systems development issues, it is essential that we expand our field of enquiry to consider what are the processes that engender social exclusion and what are the issues that derive from it?
