eInclusion: Policies and Concepts Regarding Persons with Disabilities – Considerations about Brazil and Portugal

Abstract.

Digital inclusion and citizenship are closely related, because they strive for equal opportunities related to education, learning, better living, wellbeing, access to information and building up knowledge.
ICT are advantageous for everyone, but for persons with disabilities they have an utmost importance – they bridge the gap between impossible and possible ways.
Many legal frameworks and practices coexist in the same country or differ widely in scope and structure from one country to another, regarding eInclusion.
Besides all, they target citizenship and human rights, as well as the digital market.

Keywords: eInclusion, digital inclusion, disability, Brazil, Portugal, policy.
