Abstract

The paper proposes a new concept referring to social integration
(social inclusion): social enclaves. It also analyses the so-called
enclave-effect.The social enclave defines a situation of pseudointegration
of groups (populations), living in a certain „social
space“(social areal or territory).
The social enclaves and the enclave-effect are to be found in different
cultures, different countries and periods of time. The phenomenon is
not recent, but was less identified and analysed as a particular case
of social integration. The usual approaches are mostly focused on
terms like integration, inclusion, marginalization and exclusion. The
in-between social dynamic was less considered as a distinct item with
distinct characteristics and specific evolution in different
circumstances, but simply as an intermediate status of an integration
process.
The enclave-effect is, in our opinion, not only a transitional status: in
most cases we can consider it as a permanent live condition, strongly
influenced by different social and political determinations, cultural
and conjectural factors, like the formal and ideological rejection of
some categories of people, social incomprehensibility, prejudges,
political orientations.
The enclave effect is not only a temporary one. Sometimes it could be
seen as a fiasco of some governmental social programmes and
strategies, as a failure of the traditional social policies.
