This article discusses the localization of the inclusion agenda and asks on what kind of framework should urban communities in the developed world build their inclusion policies? This chapter is based on a realist, domain-specific universalism, which is reflected in an emphasis on common humanity and harmony among people living in an urban community. In addition, this discussion is oriented toward improving people’s chances to participate in value creation to benefit themselves as well as the surrounding community, which is an under-researched topic in urban and community research as well as in other branches and subfields of social sciences. This implies a shift in concern from social to economic inclusion or, in other words, from entitlement to value creation. Such an approach is expected to catalyze economic inclusion and lead to the improvement of quality of life among all segments and sectors of the community.
