Is inclusive design failing inclusion? Identifying the dilemmas at the core philosophy and practices of inclusive design

Luka Kille-Speckter, Farnaz Nickpour

University of Liverpool, United Kingdom

‘Inclusion’ is aspirationally popular these days, but a true mess at the same time – full of complexities, contradictions and compromises. With the rise of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) to the top of societal ‘agenda’, a question worth asking is, are we becoming truly more inclusive, or simply moving towards a version of inclusion which is ‘realistic’, ‘achievable’ and ‘measurable’. What role does Inclusive Design play here and which narrative/s of inclusion is it contributing to? In this conversation, we interrogate the potential paradoxes and dilemmas of Inclusive Design from both a philosophical and a practical point of view. We then ask how these could be categorically captured and successfully communicated to inform the practice and advance the field.
