Magnets of Social Exclusion

Social exclusion is the process in which individuals or people are systematically blocked from (or denied full access to) various rights, opportunities and resources that are normally available to members of a different group, and which are fundamental to social integration and observance of human rights within that particular group (e.g., housing, employment, healthcare, civic engagement, democratic participation, and due process). It is is the social disadvantage and relegation to the fringe of society. It is a term used widely in Europe and was first used in France. It is used across disciplines including education, sociology, psychology, politics and economics.

The process of social exclusion is dragging away certain people or group of people to drag away from the core of the society.There are different magnets of social exclusion which drag people  away from the core of the society to the fringes of society.

  • Poverty Magnet
  • Ill health Magnet
  • Discrimination magnet
