The Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa is seeking applications for its Marginalisation and Inequality Course that will provide a policy lens on social exclusion and marginalisation, by laying out a theoretical framework for understanding the process by which certain groups are systematically disadvantaged.
(Ad) Still, finding it difficult to find new grants and donors to support your work? No way to easily search and identify upcoming funding opportunities? No idea how to raise funds? We have a solution for you. Our Premium Membership service answers all your questions. Learn more.
The course will be held from the 7 – 18 March 2016 in Johannesburg. Participants must arrive on the 6 March 2016 and cannot leave before the course ends on the 18th at 17h00 pm.
As discrimination occurs in public institutions, such as the legal system or education and health services, as well as social institutions like the household, the course will focus on the ways in which these institutions either challenge or deepen social exclusion.

The course will use a number of innovative mechanisms to facilitate this discussion, to equip policy-makers and those who work to influence policy outcomes and social programmes, with the skills to better identify the drivers of social exclusion, and the mechanisms for addressing it. Particular emphasis will be on:
- A human rights framework for protecting the rights of marginalised people and
- Policies and programmes that seek to address the long-term and systemic challenges that marginalised groups face.
