Social Inclusion of Disadvantaged Groups
Socially disadvantaged groups include groups of people who do not have full and equal access to basic social security (unemployment benefits or social benefits). This includes many groups that cannot exploit all civil rights in society. The reason may be targeted discrimination by the state apparatus or even prejudices of society. Disabled people, homosexuals, immigrants, national, religious and ethnic minorities, etc. are usually included in this category. The boundary between social disadvantage and exclusion is not clearly defined.
The socially disadvantaged group has both external and internal causes. External causes are beyond the reach and control of excluded groups. These include, for example, the labor market, social policy of the state, discrimination. On the contrary, the internal causes (which result from the actions of specific people affected by social exclusion) include the inability to manage money, apathy, low motivation, and focus on the immediate satisfaction of needs. The above causes are assumptions that can push people to the margins of society.
We distinguish several forms of disadvantages:
1. Spatial disadvantage.
2. Economic disadvantage.
3. Cultural disadvantage.
4. Social disadvantage.
