Description: Increasingly, concern has been growing across Europe over the disintegration of social relations. This, the first major study in this area, defines what is meant by 'social exclusion' in terms of its causes, how it is experienced, and the way in which policy and community initiatives are confronting the problem.

It is argued that developments in the structure of the global economy, resulting in investment in certain areas, have intensified social polarization and exclusion. The symptoms of 'social exclusion' include long-term unemployment; informalization of work; a widening gap in levels of income, education and health; and changing family structure. This is heightened by planning and housing policies, which often create whole neighborhoods of disadvantaged people. Comparative studies of communities responding to social exclusion lead to proposals for urban regeneration schemes linking housing with employment as part of a Europe-wide initiative to combat the problem.
