This report proposes a new policy strategy for eInclusion in support of European policy-making. First, it proposes a broad working definition for eInclusion based on recent research (Kaplan) and uses Armatya Sen's capability approach in order to identify priority areas for policy action. Secondly, it explores the role of IST take-up in inclusion, based on research into the socio-economic dimensions of ICT take-up so far. Thirdly, it explores the potential of IST-based applications in each of the priority areas in support of eInclusion. Finally, it draws up an agenda for specific policy recommendations and stakeholder action in these priority areas and offers some implementation guidelines derived from experience with previous eInclusion initiatives.
