The idea of developing a Global Social Inclusion Index is still in the exploration phase. If you’re interested to join and think about the form of the index, possible indicators, or databases that can be used, please write an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The next meeting is 5 October at Partos.
Governments of all countries need to take all measures possible to include marginalised groups.
The Global Social Inclusion Index should monitor to what extent countries’ governments live up to the SDGs 2030 agenda and whether they take action to include marginalised groups. The idea is that this index will be a joint effort by development organisations that advocate for one or more marginalised groups, and with other organisations, such as CIVICUS. The indicators of the index should become target group specific, to make it more interesting. The ambition is to develop and use the Global Social Inclusion Index on international scale.
An index could make de most marginalised more visible, be a benchmark, help with policy making, and help with learning. The index can be used as a claim for making power!
