An international group of university scholars has developed this book, as a response to the “post-truth” world, where youth increasingly rely on information from unverified and often undocumented sources coming from different social media outlets. Disadvantaged and marginalized groups, like immigrants, ethnic minorities, people with low socioeconomic status, women, people with disabilities, etc. are especially affected by online misinformation. These groups are often presented in social media in a polarized, highly negative manner, backed up by strong statements like “These people are…”, followed by strong negative characteristics attributed to them, pointing out weakness, threat, or danger. Against this background, university teachers who are also leading researchers of the core topics related to social inclusion (e.g., identity, prejudice, social relationships) have elaborated this open-access book to help students and teachers to understand better what social inclusion is and how they can promote it working with marginalized and discriminated groups.
