Social inclusion represents one of the main objectives of the policies at the European and global levels. This article presents the results of the first Intellectual Output (IO) of the LIDA project (Learning Inclusion in a Digital Age). LIDA is financed under the Erasmus+ program and focused on the promotion of social integration and active citizenship of migrants and refugees through digital technologies and digital storytelling. The IO allowed gathering insights on the Italian context for social inclusion from the point of view of relevant stakeholders working at the local and political levels. The concluding paragraph briefly traces the implications of this part of the IO for the subsequent phases of the project.
