The inclusion lens is …

… observing a constellation in reference to the level of exclusion, segregation, integration and inclusion of its members. The following image speaks directly to our intuitive understanding of these four dynamics qualifiers.



I’m not sure who created the original image. When I discuss this topic I simply notice that the image means a different thing to different people, mostly depending on the context they apply it to. That is why I prefer to share the image of the 4 dynamics qualifiers without cementing it into a fixed definition. And even less I desire to attach an idealism to these different possible situations. I believe each of them can have advantages and disadvantages, depending on the context, the situation, the time and the state of evolution.

One very concrete exemple is how the United Nations has used this context to make a study about the rights of persons with disabilities to education in their General comment No. 4 (2016).
