Abstract

Social inclusion and exclusion are buzzwords in today’s political discourse. While there are many causes of social exclusion, one of the factors repeatedly shown to lead to social exclusion is mental illness, which may hinder people in developing themselves in accordance with their wishes and abilities. Participation is a key dimension of social inclusion—and one that we particularly seek to increase understanding of in this volume. We focus on participation taking place in face-to-face social encounters, seeking to get to the root of the preconditions and consequences of participation by unraveling the interactional processes that underlie what makes it possible. We presuppose that participation in any social or societal sphere presupposes social interaction, which in turn requires the capacity to coordinate with and make sense of others’ actions. Thus, drawing on joint decision-making as a specific arena of social interaction, where the participants’ collaborative management of the turn-by-turn sequential unfolding of interaction can have tangible consequences for the participants’ social and economic circumstances, we seek to increase understanding of the specific vulnerabilities that individuals with mental illness have in this context.
