The main hypothesis in this paper is that social exclusion ratifies
poverty and encourages dynamics of chronic poverty. It explores the
connections between social exclusion and poverty, and how this
relationship is linked to dynamics that tend to make poverty chronic. We
highlight the problem of lack of personal documentation, as both a
symptom and a cause of social exclusion and chronic poverty, explaining
the causes of undocumentation and the extent of the problem uncovered
during our work.
