This paper deals with the concept of inclusion, which has been present in the field of disability for years. The core of this thesis is to give a theoretical and a practical description of what inclusion is, as well as determining factors which are connected to inclusive thinking. The more practical part is dedicated to identifying concrete strategies for the implementation of these theories. A main focus of this paper is to find out more about the status quo and the potential capacity of inclusion in the field of disability in Graz. The theoretical part specifies the definition of 'disability', going into detail on the basis of legal and sociological, resp. pedagogical theories. To concretize the idea of inclusion, contemporary scientific discourses: are utilized: connection to ‘exclusion, boundary to ‘integration, and understanding as a human right. The empirical part consists of nine qualitative, guideline-oriented interviews, representing the basis for understanding inclusion from the perspective of stakeholders. The analysis shows that on the one hand, inclusion is thought on a conceptual level, which means that models are developed ‘from top to bottom and on the other hand, it shows the social dimension that inclusion has, which reflects implicit value judgments acting as a utopian guiding idea for how to deal with diversity. Another result arising from this analysis is to show how important a discussion about inclusion is, especially for humans with a disability: ‘being included or ‘getting included, ‘live like others or ‘live in their peers the thesis at hand gives an idea of how far humans with a disability are involved and participate in this kind of debate and which consequences result out of this. The concept of inclusion challenges conventional standards, patterns and approaches through a reflexive perspective, and tends to sensibilize the social and personal consciousness.
