A Social Exclusion Perspective on Social Work in Latin America


This paper explores the relationship between social work and social exclusion within the context of poverty as capability deprivation. It suggests that a social exclusion perspective could be relevant and useful to social work theory and practice in Latin America. The Chile Solidario Program is used as an example of a social program that incorporates a social exclusion perspective and in which social workers play a vital role in promoting social inclusion.
