Abstract [en]

In this paper the issue of routes towards knowledge society inclusion and the building of knowledge economies are examined. This is done via three different sub-cases identified within the EU FP7 project N4C (Networking for Communications Challenged Communities). Starting from the two separate theses that inclusion starts with either physical access or the social context, the conclusion is that inclusion is best understood as intersection of opportunities and obstacles that define each situation. One person or group may be successfully included in one instance but in other aspects stand outside the knowledge society
