Abstract: This report presents the findings of a literature review undertaken by the AHURI Southern Research Centre that addresses the relevance of the concept of social exclusion for Australian housing policy. The review is premised on the assumption that because social exclusion is emerging as an important theme in Australian housing policy debate, it is worthy of greater exploration. In general terms, social exclusion is understood to denote a set of factors and processes that accentuate material and social deprivation. However, the point of this review was not to attempt to provide a single definition of social exclusion, or to undertake a review of studies concerned with the notion of measurement; this is a worthy project in its own right.
