Abstract

This paper is a contribution to the evidence base for a new DFID strategy on exclusion. It provides a desk-based review of lessons learnt from public policy responses to tackle exclusion drawing on case studies of Brazil, South Africa and India. It aims to explain how they have arisen, the degree of success they appear to have had and the nature of the obstacles they seem to have encountered.
