Abstract

Over the last few years, social inclusion of vulnerable groups has increased as teoretical concept. Nevertheless example of pratical instruments to improve this are lacking. This book, therefore, provides a new trajectory of research that focuses on participatory and emancipatory approaches. This research should help shed some light on these new approaches especially useful to professionals in the field of disability. In the first part of book an in-depth literature analysis of the main academic publications on the meaning of inclusion and disability is presented. Follows a focus on participatory and emancipatory approaches in order to connect these with the concepts of active citizenship and socially innovative actions. In the second part of the book two case studies concerning participatory and emancipatory approaches are reported and analyzed as example of the improvement of inclusion, through the involvement and participation of persons with disability. This book contributes to providing a knowledge-base that fosters a shift from a situation of passivity, sickness and patient care to a new scenario based on the person’s commitment and active role.
