Rational Exclusion: Rational Choice Approaches to Social Exclusion

Wednesday, 18 July 2018: 10:30-12:20
RC45 Rational Choice (host committee)

Language: English

Social exclusion has a longstanding tradition of theoretical as well as policy oriented attention, and rational choice theory has been applied to it since Schelling's segregation model. The subject of the session is also related to power, violence, and justice, the theme of the congress. Recent developments in the study of social exclusion have focused on the accumulation of exclusion in various societal spheres. Rational choice theory that pays attention to social processes would contribute to detailed analysis of the accumulation process. Not only theoretical but also empirical studies are welcome to this session
