SARAVI, Gonzalo A.. Biografías de exclusión: desventajas y juventud en Argentina. Perf. latinoam. [online]. 2006, vol.13, n.28, pp.83-116. ISSN 0188-7653.

This article analyzes the increasing vulnerability of the biographical experiences. The purpose is to explore and improve our knowledge about the processes of cumulative disadvantages in Latin America leading toward social exclusion. In this sense, the author attempts to provide an analytical perspective in order to approach the multidimensional and dynamic character of vulnerability and social exclusion. The discussion focuses on the transition to adulthood in young people from popular sectors in Argentina, given that this is a key period of the life course in the process of social integration. The cumulative process of old and new disadvantages during this transition is a central topic of this article. The arguments are founded on quantitative analysis (based on the Households Continuous Survey) and qualitative analysis of 60 in depth interviews conducted with young people of Greater Buenos Aires.

Keywords : social exclusion; youth; biographies and life course; cumulative disadvantages; Argentina.
