Social exclusion is a relatively new term intended to capture the changing nature of poverty. It is difficult to operationalize and may be defined differently among governments. The Spanish autonomous communities all have responsibilities in this area and vary in the degree and nature of exclusion risks faced by their populations. They have developed distinct strategies, which are analysed along the axes of public powers versus market solutions, and families versus social networks. © 2005 Taylor & Francis.
