Social and Economic Inclusion, particularly for migrants, refugees and other vulnerable groups, becomes more and more important in an urban context as millions of people displaced by conflict or economic challenges move  into cities around the globe.  They cross national borders or they move from the country to the city.  In either case, they take up residence in cities that are often ill-equipped to handle them.  Often they remain “under the radar” and excluded from the services and opportunities of the city.  When they arrive in large numbers, as currently in Europe and the Middle East, they are sometimes housed in temporary camps and other accommodation for processing and re-settling.  They often also find themselves in conflict with residents of the cities to which they have come.
