This chapter explores continuities between the 1970s and the 1990s, and between the cycle hypothesis, the Research Programme, and social exclusion. It looks first at how the idea of social exclusion evolved in France, and how it has been subsequently embraced by other European countries. It looks at how the language of social exclusion was imported into Britain, and became part of the vocabulary of New Labour. It traces the relationship between the emphasis on social exclusion and the new literature on poverty dynamics, attempts to operationalize social exclusion, notable by CASE at the LSE, and the revival of agency among academics. It argues that it is the language of social exclusion, the influence of dynamic approaches to poverty, and an emphasis on behaviour and responsibility that have — at least in part — provided the context for the revival of transmitted deprivation.

Keywords:   agency, cycle hypothesis, poverty, social exclusion, France, Britain, New Labour, poverty dynamics, CASE, transmitted deprivation
