None, however, will be included in all (sub)systems or, conversely, excluded from them all at the same time (see below). 1 illustrates our understanding of the connection between inclusion, exclusion and marginalisation from a system-theoretical point of view. 1: Inclusion, exclusion, marginalisation Process of marginalisation ‘ruptures’, a door is added that makes movements possible into and out of the system. This corresponds with many empirical observations and consequently a zone is defined on both sides of the borderline where one can speak about marginality.

Arguing that modern societies should alter their economic practices to be more eco-friendly, revaluing ‘local work’ is seen by them as a key part of the ‘new localist’ agenda required in order for sustainable development to be achieved (Robertson, 1998). Although various reasons therefore exist for recognising and revaluing work beyond employment, a thorny issue that all analysts have had to confront is how to define work once it is taken to mean more than employment. Despite universal agreement that work cannot be distinguished from leisure by listing tasks (for example, cooking, ironing, and writing) and that the social relations within which activity is conducted need to be investigated, at this point, the two camps diverge.

It is possible for each of the large number of (sub)systems to identify strong/weak positions within all three zones where individuals possess larger/smaller amounts of resources which allow them greater/lesser freedom of choice whether or not to maintain their present position. Consequently, it is more in accordance with empirical observations to conceive inclusion, marginality and exclusion as relative concepts: you can be more or less included, more or less excluded and more or less marginalised.
