This webinar will outline how the concept of financial exclusion emerged, and how it has become a broadly accepted public policy objective. It looks at the origins of the work in efforts to explain the shifting geographies of financial infrastructure. The second part of the webinar will outline recent critiques of financial exclusion, considering possible alternative nomenclature (e.g. financial rights and citizenship, financial resilience) and the disconnection between such academic debates and the material ‘realities’ of financial inclusion/debt advice advocacy groups.

About our webinar series: financial stability and financial inclusion are often thought of separately by dedicated policy-makers and experts. Yet, they are two sides of the same coin. Furthermore, the solutions found to reconcile both objectives cannot be separated from local and spatial characteristics. The purpose of this webinar series is to discuss the link between financial stability and financial inclusion from a spatial perspective.

The series is jointly organised by YSI Working Groups on Urban and Regional Economics, on Financial Stability and on Inequality.
