This project forms part of a long-term research work, which aims to develop a simple but comprehensive theory of social exclusion in which more specific theories concerning the great variability of marginalization phenomena can comfortably be placed. Given this objective, some wide hypotheses concerning processes of ethnic exclusion, which have been developed by this research team, will be tested with ethnographic data from diverse ethnic minority groups in Spain: the Ndowe from Guinea Equatorial, the Wolof from Senegal and The Gambia; the Berbers and Arabians from Morocco; some gypsy groups and some native and immigrant groups who have come to Catalonia from other regions of Spain. The central aspects of this project deal with processes of integration, selective acculturation and compatibilization or reconstruction of representations, and construction or reconstruction of identity in the areas of health, labour, education and the formalitzation of ethnic membership. With respect to participatory observation, which began several years ago, qualitative methods, such as life histories and interviews, which allow for contextualization and evaluation of significance ç, will be used. Towards the end of the project, more structured methods, such as structure thematic trajectories, structured interviews, and to a lesser extent, questionnaires, which allow for quantification, will be used.
