209 Selective inclusion TEN Selective inclusion: asylum seekers and other marginalised groups Tania Burchardt Introduction Establishing the Social Exclusion Unit (SEU) in 1997 as part of the Cabinet Office was an early initiative of the Labour government. The brief of the SEU fell into two parts: neighbourhood renewal (considered in Chapter Six of this volume); and countering the exclusion of marginalised groups (considered in this chapter). Up to early 2004, the groups about whom the SEU has produced reports have been as follows: • pupils excluded from school or

to support the retention and progression of women. For now, we note how the pressure of historical and present-day barriers for women and marginalised groups can lead to the feeling that they are being crushed by the weight of what has gone before (see Figure 4.1 ). In the chemical sciences, the lack of retention and progression for women and all those with protected equality and diversity (EDI) characteristics is pronounced. 27 This is highlighted by data – for example in the UK in physics the percentage of women choosing to study at A-level at school or college

219 SIXTEEN Making connections: supporting new forms of engagement by marginalised groups Karen Postle and Peter Beresford Introduction This chapter explores the implications of two competing discourses on participation: the consumerist discourse and one concerned with empowerment, democratisation and liberation.

‘Nothing about Us without Us’

The people most impacted by criminal justice policies and practices are seldom included in the decision-making processes that affect their lives.

Building on the ‘nothing about us without us’ social movement, this edited volume advocates an inclusive approach to criminology that gives voice to historically marginalized, silenced, and ignored groups.

Incorporating the experiences of service users, academics, and state and grassroots practitioners, this volume considers how researchers might bridge the gap between theory and lived experience. It furthers criminological scholarship by capturing the voices of marginalized groups and exploring how criminology can authentically incorporate these voices.

Challenging the Myth of a US Food Revival

Driven by consumers’ desire for slow and local food, craft breweries, traditional butchers, cheese makers and bakeries have been popping up across the US in the last twenty years. Typically urban and staffed predominantly by white middle class men, these industries are perceived as a departure from tradition and mainstream lifestyles. But this image obscures the diverse communities that have supported artisanal foods for centuries.

Using the oral histories of over 100 people, this book brings to light the voices, experiences, and histories of marginalized groups who keep Southern foodways alive. The larger than life stories of these individuals reveal the complex reality behind the movement and show how they are the backbone of the so-called "new explosion" of craft food.

A Comparative Analysis of Policy and Place

Nuanced interconnections of poverty and educational attainment around the UK are surveyed in this unique analysis.

Across the four jurisdictions of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, experts consider the impact of curriculum reforms and devolved policy making on the lives of children and young people in poverty. They investigate differences in educational ideologies and structures, and question whether they help or hinder schools seeking to support disadvantaged and marginalised groups.

For academics and students engaged in education and social justice, this is a vital exploration of poverty’s profound effects on inequalities in educational attainment and the opportunities to improve school responses.
