Even if a nation can achieve economic growth and create opportunities for education, training and employment, many people will not be able to take advantage because they are marginalised and disadvantaged. Their marginalisation, in turn, is a loss to society and a drag on the economic wellbeing of the whole community. In this Thematic Session the speakers will share their experiences and the experiences of their countries in facing the challenge of ensuring that all cultural groups are respected and able to play a full part in the social and economic life of the community, thereby contributing to the well-being of all and the reduction of poverty.
