Abstract english

In current debate a number of terms are used to describe the positions

of different groups and individuals, eg. deviation, marginalisation,

segregation, integration, inclusion and exclusion. The terminology

aids us in giving everyday life a manageable structure and meaning,

but it also work as a tool of stigma and to keep large groups outside

society, not least in research agendas. By using the terminology as

structuring devices and analytical categories to describe and understand

processes of exclusion do we add, although not purposely, to the

formulation of the boundaries of exclusion.

To understand these processes it is necessary to begin within us.

By viewing our own position and behaviour it will soon be obvious

that it is about Us and Them. Norbert Elias and John L Scotson have

in a very illustrative way described how it works in their study -

Established and Outsiders (1965).
