Social inclusion of vulnerable groups in the IPA Adriatic Area
This book concerns the social, economic and scholastic inclusion of vulnerable groups in the IPA Adriatic Area, identifying the main factors underlying their socioeconomic position, with particolar reference to the cultural barriers to inclusion. Moving from a semiotic analysis of the media representations of homelessness, the volume then presents an in-depth sociological examination of the most effective educational policies for integration of the culturally-diverse in Europe and a comparative statistical gender analysis of the situation and trend over recent years across the European States, with a close look at the IPA Adriatic countries.
