This chapter examines the New Labour government's strategy for addressing the social injustices of deprivation and social polarisation, focusing on the Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) project in Blackbird Leys in Oxford, England. It evaluates whether social-exclusion policy has successfully addressed cultural aspects of injustice and social exclusion. The chapter argues that while social exclusion itself is a multidimensional concept, promising to encompass both economic and cultural aspects of injustice and exclusion, its use in current British social-exclusion discourse and policy can in fact be seen to perpetuate and reproduce, rather than successfully address, cultural aspects of injustice.
