The Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) is a British research centre at the Suntory and Toyota International Centres for Economic and Related Disciplines (STICERD) at the London School of Economics.
Established in October 1997, CASE is uses multi-disciplinary research to explore social disadvantage and the role of social and public policies in preventing, mitigating or exacerbating it. Social disadvantage is taken to be multidimensional, and often best understood in a dynamic or lifecourse perspective, and with individual, family, local, national and international aspects.
The work programme of the Centre includes monitoring social spending, policies and outcomes in the UK, international comparisons of poverty and of the association between social outcomes and labour market and welfare institutions, analysing patterns of social inequality, including wealth inequality, between groups and over time, developing applications of the capability approach and human rights measurement, and studying the intersection of climate change policy and social policy; as well as studies focused on particular groups and policy areas such as vulnerable children and early years education. It has close links with the LSE’s International Inequalities Institute and are pursuing a joint programme with the Institute on the relationship between economic inequality and multidimensional poverty, supported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. CASE also incorporates the research and consultancy group LSE Housing and Communities, which investigates the impact of policies on social housing and other tenures with a particular focus on residents in disadvantaged areas.
CASE is part of the Suntory and Toyota International Centres for Economics and Related Disciplines (STICERD). CASE was originally funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and now receives funding from a range of organisations including charitable foundations (for example, Nuffield Foundation, and Joseph Rowntree Foundation), research councils (for example, ESRC), UK government departments, the European Union, a range of Registered Social Landlords, and a number of other charities and organisations in the UK and abroad.
