Critically consider the relevance of the concept of social inclusion to the struggle against poverty. Address competing interpretations of social inclusion, while proposing an alternative approach based on a 'life-first' understanding, which prioritises the inclusive realisation of social rights as shared means by which human needs are articulated. Suggest that such an approach might potentially speak to actors in a variety of contexts and from across the ideological spectrum.
