Social Exclusion, Integration and Inclusive Policies

Edited by: V. Subramanyam, K. Sekhar

Social exclusion is a ubiquitous phenomenon that adversely affects individuals, groups, and communities, negating the spirit of democracy, equality, and agency. Given the complex character of India's society, social exclusion is more systemic and intense. Numerous initiatives have sought to facilitate the integration of excluded groups. The process has gained momentum, formulating inclusive policies with social justice as their fulcrum. Research has been carried out to conceptualize and contextualize the social exclusion of disadvantaged and marginalized groups, such as the Dalits, religious and ethnic minorities, women, the disabled, and the displaced in India. This book contains research papers presented at a workshop organized by the Center for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy at Andhra University. The analytical and informative contributions relate to a range of themes concerning social exclusion, inclusive policies, and integration.
