Social welfare, Social exclusion, A life course frame

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology (editor)


Have you ever experienced standing on the sidelines unable to participate despite wishing to? It has happened to us in various situations: in school,at sports practice, at work, or even at parties. Our experiences are normal episodes in everyday life, but imagine if they were consistent. Being systematically excluded from basic opportunities, rights and services in society is a different matter.
This book is about social exclusion as it may appear at different times in life. Eleven authors have contributed with conceptual discussions, empirical studies and enlightening thoughts about social exclusionary processes
and the structures they evolve within and create. We think that practitioners, researchers and students of sociology, social work, social services and social policy will appreciate this book.
