Reclaiming Social Policy re-evaluates the importance of social policies in the shaping of well-being and combating exclusion, and enhance critical understanding of how these policies are constituted in a globalising world. Written from a practitioner's perspective, the core concern of the book is the capacity for policy making required to protect groups from becoming excluded, promote inclusion, and avoid sharpening of trends towards marginalization. The book emphasises the context- and path-dependence of patterns and policies of inclusion and exclusion, and provides a normative and practical framework for supporting social policy making.
