Employment, Education And Social Exclusion: Analyzing The Situation Of People At Prison In Galicia
AbstractSocial exclusion may arise from a single cause, but there are some groups in a higher risk of getting it, because they are exposed to several different circumstances at once. Inclusion in the labor market is a key element to avoid it, since unemployment can drive to isolation and poverty. If this situation is combined with the lack of proper training, it hampers the possibilities of getting a job, and as consequence, going away of the spiral that leads to exclusion becomes more complex. For inmates it is common to find several potential reasons for exclusion, frequently related to the crime committed. This paper analyzes the situation of people serving sentences in both prisons and social insertion centers in Galicia (Spain), through a quantitative analysis focused on the possibilities of inclusion of the prison population, when they get back to society, by their attitudes and skills. We have found that this attitude is related to inmate’s educational level and training as well as their social networks or with their own awareness of their actual situation.
