Summary text/ abstractResearch suggests that political disengagement and social exclusion consolidate and drive each other. However, there is difficulty in determining the exact relationship and causal direction between factors of social exclusion and levels and forms of political disengagement. This paper explores how and why those experiencing social disadvantage tend to also be the most politically excluded in society. It reviews the available literature on the subject and draws on existing research and evidence. It aims to explore some of the key causes and issues relating to political exclusion and, in doing so, it provides some pointers about how these barriers to political participation might be overcome.
