About this Unit
This unit examines the processes of marginalisation and empowerment locally, nationally and globally. While the focus is on the marginalisation and empowerment of social groups, the ways in which social issues can be marginalised will also be discussed. Students will explore the role of social institutions, community organisations and inequities of power, wealth & opportunity, specifically in relation to the construction, development, organization, maintenance and amelioration of marginalisation, empowerment and self-determination of particular social groups.
