Social Marginalization is the social disadvantage and relegation to the fringe of society. It is a term that is used across disciplines including education, sociology, psychology, politics and economics.
Marginalization refers to the set of processes through which some individuals and groups face systematic disadvantages in their interactions with dominant social, political and economic institutions. The disadvantages arise from class status, social group identity (kinship, ethnicity, caste and race), political affiliation, gender, age and disability. (IDEAS, 2012)
