Abstract

Social exclusion is a relatively new term currently in use in Europe to describe both the circumstances of marginalization and the processes that lead to marginalization. Social exclusion tends to be rooted in multiple forms of deprivation, related to issues such as employment status, housing, rights, education, gender or race, and is thus comprehensive in nature. There is an ongoing debate regarding the relevance of the concept to developing countries: given the differences in social and economic development between developed and developing countries, some critics argue that social exclusion is not an exportable concept. This paper seeks to review these arguments and analyze the policy implications, suggesting a possible way forward using the Sustainable Livelihoods Framework, involving multi-dimensional programs that prioritize human development and welfare, and which address exclusionary processes.
