Executive summary

Social exclusion is an important emerging issue within social research and in the management of social issues. Social workers and social policymakers agree on the difficulty of measuring social exclusion. However, they recognize that human populations experience exclusion in varying degrees and most societies include groups vulnerable to it; mainly those social and economic groups experiencing life cycle transformations, such as young people, especially those aged 15-24 years.
