In favour of economic growth and advancement in pro-poor policies, developed and
developing countries have succeeded to reduce poverty. However, social policies in the less developed nations paid less attention to resolve the growing phenomenon occurring across the social strata, popularly known as social exclusion. This study aims to fill the gap; to investigate social exclusion through the lens of capability approach by taking the case of Indonesia. It aims to seek answer the question of:

The study uses the Indonesian Family Life Survey 2000 and 2007 to examine individual exclusion in three dimensions: social, economic, and political exclusion. The results will indicate the significant elements of capabilities, which constitute individual social exclusion in the three dimensions and how it evolves over time. The analysis will
