A dyadic mode of reasoning is used to consider social behaviour and practices that generate social inclusion and exclusion in contemporary globalized societies. After reviewing definitions of social inclusion/exclusion and their relationship to one another, the author examines nine perspectives on social exclusion and three levels of societal analysis through which social theorists attempt to understand inclusionary/exclusionary dynamics, processes and outcomes. Special attention is then given to the issues of inclusion/exclusion with regard to migration and citizenship and to the emergence and employment of these concepts in contemporary debates.

Per prendere in considerazione il comportamento e le pratiche che generano inclusione/esclusione sociale nelle società globalizzate di solito è usata una modalità ragionamento di tipo diadico. Dopo aver esaminato le definizioni di inclusione/ esclusione sociale e la loro reciproca relationship, l’autore esamina nove prospettive inerenti l’esclusione sociale e tre livelli di analisi della società attraverso i quali i sociologi tentano di comprendere le dinamiche di inclusione/esclusione, i relativi processi e i conseguenti risultati . Speciale attenzione è quindi data ai temi dell’inclusione/esclusione per quanto riguarda la migrazione e cittadinanza e alla nascita e l’impiego di questi concetti nei dibattiti contemporanei.
Keywords: Inclusione sociale; esclusione sociale; pensiero diadico ; esclusione multidimensionale; migrazione
