Concepts and Strategies for Combating Social Exclusion
Jordi Estivill
Price: $ 11.95

Millions of people in the world experience social exclusion and poverty - creating a grave situation that affects the whole of humanity and is unlikely to disappear in the near future. While recognizing the increasing importance of understanding social exclusion, this book provides valuable background on the concept and how it thrives in the economic and social situation of the world today. It offers numerous strategies for combating it and identifies appropriate ways to identify, analyse, and make social exclusion more visible and break through its opacity.

The volume also presents a detailed overview of the whole range of factors and their initiatives: international institutions and networks, governments and public administrations, workers¿ and employers¿ organizations, voluntary associations, the social economy and citizens¿ and community initiatives. In addition, it makes a distinction between the reproductive, palliative, preventive and emancipatory strategies which are intended to combat social exclusion and outlines a number of guiding principles.
