ABSTRACT

In recent years in the public discourse of many European countries there has been a shift in emphasis from poverty to social exclusion. Social exclusion is generally asserted to be multi-dimensional, in contrast to poverty, which is considered to be uni-dimensional and concerned with material resources taken alone. Social exclusion can be defined as a combination of lack of economic resources, social isolation, and limited access to social and civil rights. Social exclusion as a concept offers a broader perspective in addressing multi-dimensional disadvantage, especially in relation to social policy. The purpose of this study is to explore the concept of social exclusion and to find out the risk which women face and its implication for the women's policy in Korea. For this purpose, we provide an overview of some important thinkers about meaning of social exclusion, discuss the data and the empirical analysis, and deal with the implications of the results. The results show that there are many qualitative and quantitative differences between women and men, and women face a higher risk of social exclusion than the rest of the population.
