The author analyses the concept of social exclusion, arguing that the term has become a label for `another `vulnerable group’ with no differentiation, complexity, agency, or resistance’. She instead suggests that we look to broader ideas of justice, participation, and citizenship, to bring the `social’ aspect back into the concept, which should be more synonymous with discrimination and marginalisation than with the failure of formal (education, employment, legal etc.) systems.
