Main themes

The first part of the course is devoted to an approach ot the main concepts and theories of marginalization, of its causes and its effects.

It encompasses an analysis of the processes of marginalization related to economic and social developments, to legal approaches to topics such as poverty, housing, immigration, drug addiction, etc.

Aims

The course seeks to introduce interested students to current issues relating to marginalization, exclusion and alienation.

The method is multidisciplinary in that the concepts are approached from historical, sociological, legal and psychological perspectives. It seeks to enable the student, from his own curriculum (this course is open to students of criminology, psychology and educational sciences, law and sociology), to identify the issues of marginalization and of exclusion in a broader framework and in a dynamic perspective.
