Social Exclusion and Political Participation: The Radicalization of Political Voting

In the analysis of poverty determinants, social exclusion has become seen as a phenomenon that takes many forms with wide causes and consequences.
And within this spectrum, one element worth looking into is the concept of functionings, as it involves at times some very complex dynamics in terms of individuals’ participation in community activities.

As I mention these components, I can’t stop thinking about this one article (here) that examines two distinct factors, namely social exclusion and political participation in the Caribbean region.
As an analysis worth its weight in gold, this piece gives us one aspect to ponder in the debates about functionings and capabilities, and their valuational outcomes for economic thinking and political assessments. These elements stressing the extent to which some lack of options and uncertainties underpin an explicit way to understand the voices of the poor and their demands in terms of political governance.
