This chapter examines people's day-to-day experiences of living and coping with the social evils that have been identified and discussed. It also reports on what people from disadvantaged groups see as some of the solutions. Social evils were clearly interconnected in participant's day-to-day lives. Contrasting and competing definitions emerged from the discussions of what ‘coping’ with particular social problems meant in practice. Participants primarily saw the task as one for government and politicians when asked what could or should be done to address social evils. A desire for the media, business and financial institutions and faith groups to play a more constructive part was also identified.

Keywords:   social evils, coping, social problems, living, media, business institutions, financial institutions, faith groups
