Article begins by attempting to produce a legal definition of social exclusion. It then investigates whether there have been any dramatic changes in the competencies of the EU to act in this field since the Treaty of Amsterdam came into force. The open method of co-ordination, the Treaty of Nice and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights are assessed from the point of view of their potential for combating social exclusion.
