Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): -
Expertise offered In modern societies social exclusion has become one of the most considerable social problems. The youth is one of the social groups that experience the constant risk of social exclusion. The base prerequisite of youth’s exclusion from the main social processes is the social outsideration. The state of social outsideration defines directly the different forms of destructive behavior of those social groups which feel their exclusion the most keenly. This destruction becomes apparent in two ways. It can be apply to itself and acquire the form of social escapism – the free-will exclusion from macro social nets in narcotization, alcoholization, and social infantilism. «Outward» addressee is the society or «summarized another one», and the result of social exclusion is aggression to them. This aggression acquires the different forms including extremism and xenophobia. The considerable of scientific results in studying such manifestation of social youth’s exclusion as social outsideration are obtained by scientific research collective of the chair of social technologies of Belgorod State University. In 2006 the chair led the research work «Social outsideration of young people in Belgorod region: reasons, mechanisms and social consequences» supported by grant of Russian Humanitarian Scientific Fund and The Government of Belgorod region, №06-03-55310 a/c and «Social outsideration as the source of dangers and threats in the conditions of frontier region» supported by grant of Russian Humanitarian Scientific Fund № 06-03-001-40а. The result of present investigations is the disposition conception of social outsideration of young people. In accordance with it the outsideration is defined first of all by the state of consciousness of young people and expressed in the presence of disposition, which doom them to «second roles» not only in young ages (14 – 29 ages), but also during all their life. If social-economic outsideration becomes apparent as dissatisfaction of young people with their vital conditions and perspectives the disposition outsideration doesn’t suppose the realization of the fact of their anomalous position. The presence of one or another type of outsideration is considered, accordingly, the different practices of social adaptation – passive and active. The basic mechanism of social youth outsideration overcoming in modern society is mobilization of its social activity.
Problems to be solved and results: The construction of the system of social outsideration indicators The elucidation of factors and mechanism of young people’s social outsideration in modern society The determination of specificity of youth social outsideration in post Soviet space and Eastern European societies. The elucidation differences in factors and mechanisms young people’s social outsideration in the countries EC and Russia. The determination of social mechanisms of minimize of social outsideration among young people.
