Objective and multidimensional measure of social exclusion Measures status of exclusion or non-exclusion, rather than perceptions or risks Applicable for Europe and Central Asia region Useful for policymaking Social Exclusion Chain Individual characteristics interact with Drivers of social exclusion Structures and institutions; values and behavior patterns; policies Drivers are external factors, influenced by legacies, that either speed up or slow down the process of individual vulnerabilities turning into social exclusion (social exclusion risk factors), like poor education, disability, minority status in context of Specific local conditions Predominant industry, single or multiple employment opportunities, local infrastructures, history of violent conflict or environmental disaster and result in Social exclusion status of the individual in three dimensions exclusion from economic life, social services, and civic and social participation Construction of index Based on Alkire-Foster (2009) Exclusion is overlapping deprivations 3 areas of exclusion, 24 indicators, 8 per area Economic exclusion Exclusion from social services Exclusion from civic and political participation Threshold is 9 out of 24 possible deprivations, but other possible thresholds tested Profiles of exclusion Different combinations of individual risks, drivers and local context produce different levels of social exclusion If you are young person, with low education, living in village, with single companyyou face high risk of exclusion and secondary education doesnt help much in these conditions + while vibrant business environment makes a lot of difference + economic centers offer more opportunities (even with low education) + + + + and much more if you are educated Source: RHDR Beyond Transition: Toward Inclusive Societies, 2011 Secondary Source Contextualization Administrative datasets Survey Statistical databases Local economy matters Serbia: Social Exclusion and Health Serbia: Social Exclusion and Education Serbia: Social Exclusion and Employment QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE DATA NEXUS: MICRONARRATIVES Why the micronarratives?

Present People tell stories about the topic and tag them against some questions Future When we get more and more stories patterns start emerge easy to catch by human eye, hard to compute less sensitive to number of stories, more sensitive to topic Patterns and stories help identify issues, solutions and actions and create feedback loops, involving people in solutions and monitoring Where we implement it? Montenegro Environmentally protected areas Montenegro Civil service and civilians Serbia Roma people Belarus, Russia, Ukraine Chernobyl-affected areas Belarus people with disabilities Georgia, Kyrgyzstan youth perception of development UNDP internal business processes Cooperation Competition Thanks to Borko Vulikic for this case Corruption Jeeps and Sheeps Cluster of stories re: Communities Revenues Source of incomes Limitations of income or business activities Dig into the stories Jeep tours were organized to protected areas but they raise dust clouds which spoil milk, the raw material for cheese cheese is major local commodity and source of incomes Solution Move jeep trail 500 m from village Thanks to Borko Vulikic for this case Questions for discussion Do Turkey need national MPI? What are relevant dimensions and indicators? What could be a data source for index? Mihail Peleah Human Development Programme and Research Officer UNDP Bratislava Regional Center
