Social exclusion: theoretical approaches

Luna Bellani () and Alessio Fusco ()

Chapter 7 in Handbook of Research on Economic and Social Well-Being, 2018, pp 193-205 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: This chapter reviews the theoretical approaches to social exclusion, which is a concept referring to a state of multidimensional disadvantage but also to the process through which an individual progressively becomes marginalized in a society. After explaining the context in which this concept emerged in the European Union, the sociological approaches are explained, followed by the axiomatic approach drawn from economics. Finally, the authors conclude by providing a comparison of the concept of social exclusion with that of income poverty.
