The notion of inclusive development globally has become accepted. In practice, however, it has been difficult. There are many reasons why people get excluded from the development process. For example, entrenched social hierarchy and discrimination based on color, creed, class, and caste are responsible. There are also structural reasons where either the magnitude or the quality of economic growth is inadequate to include the poor, the marginalized, and minorities in specific locations. Globalization for many such communities, while providing some new opportunities such as that for the upwardly mobile middle classes, has added new sources of vulnerability for the less fortunate. Some of these problems are less severe due to modernization, industrialization, and economic development, while archaic culturally based world-views deeply embedded in society have been intractable. Legal enforcement of progressive social policies, diffusion of modern education, and demonstration effects both top-down and democratically instituted have had some positive impact but clearly not enough to include many from the growth and development process in most developing countries.
This brief lecture introduces Inclusive Development, a process and an outcome championed by multilateral organizations such as the World Bank and complemented by others such as UNDP through their emphasis on employment and social protection.
