The course provides knowledge and information about the processes of marginalisation and exclusion (manners of dropping out of the "mainstream", consequences and mechanisms of inclusion). Also, through this course the most significant problems of Croatian society are identified (poverty, unemployment, exclusion, discrimination etc.). Starting from marginal groups within wider society, students become acquainted with the features, challenges and coping strategies of common marginal groups, that the majority of social welfare services come from. In that sense, this course draws on knowledge gained in the courses of sociology, social demography and social policy, and serves as a preparatory course for a group of courses in the area of social policy and social work.
