Speech Abstract
Today, diversity is discussed everywhere. There seem to be two background influences for this. (1) Globalization has increased the opportunities for encounter and conflict among people from different areas of the world. (2) Democracy makes us more conscious about human rights and discrimination against various groups of people within a society such as the poor, disabled, less educated, or somehow disadvantaged. 
Recently, the notion of “social inclusion” is receiving more and more attention. This is the concept and practice, system and institution, which address the problem of social exclusion of people who are disadvantaged in terms of their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, generation, sexual orientation, disability, education, language, job, economic or social status. At the same time, in the field of design, there is a trend which is closely related with social inclusion, as is literally seen in the phrase “inclusive design”. That is, how can design contribute to expanding social inclusion? What is its theoretical basis for this mission? How can design put it into practice? This presentation will be concerned with design as an activity which contains both theory and practice for social inclusion.
