Social Exclusion of Young Adults with Immigrant Backgrounds – Relational, spatial and political dimensions.
While research on social exclusion tends to focus on education and employment, this article focuses on the relational, spatial and political dimensions of social exclusion. These dimensions suggest a highlighting of the individual’s feeling of belonging, identity and acceptance. The main point is to emphasise how young people with immigrant backgrounds define their situation and how they develop strategies to avoid being excluded. The empirical examples are taken from a project on social inclusion and exclusion of young adults with immigrant background in seven national contexts (EUMARGINS, 2008–2011).
