This chapter discusses the main concepts applied in this book — inclusion, exclusion and marginalisation on the one hand, and the concept of work on the other. It differentiates integration in the macro-sociological sense, and integration understood as individuals' inclusion into societal systems. It explains that it is in this second distinction that the problematic of inclusion/exclusion seems to be applied most effectively. It discusses the necessity of making explicit what one means by inclusion, exclusion and marginalisation when using the concepts. It argues that individuals can, willingly or unwillingly, be in situations of inclusion, exclusion and marginalisation with respect to a multidimensionality of domains, practices, institutions or systems.

Keywords:   inclusion, exclusion, marginalisation, societal systems, multidimensionality, macro-sociological
