Accordingly, [...] inclusion processes involve more than improving access to economic resources [...] and [inclusion] is defined as the process of improving the terms of participation in society, particularly for people who are disadvantaged, through enhancing opportunities, access to resources, voice and respect for rights” (UN 2016: p.17).
