To be advised
If social exclusion and inclusion is about more than just poverty and re-distribution, how are we to understand its social dimensions? And how do the social and economic dimensions relate - in theory, in policy, and on the ground.
The subject is about understanding the social and cultural dimensions of social inclusion, and how the social and economic dimensions of social exclusion and inclusion relate in theory, policy, and on the ground. It approaches social exclusion and inclusion through the politics of recognition, respect and re-distribution. It combines broad-ranging analysis of key social issues with conceptual understandings of social justice together with practical research skills.
