Abstract

The ability to overcome poverty is blocked by the dynamics of social exclusion. This article examines the notion of
upward mobility. The linking of the factors of socio-economic, socio-cultural and socio-political exclusion with strong
spacial segregation, have the tendency to reinforce, strengthen and perpetuate the most extreme and persistent forms of
poverty and inequality. In the particular case of Metropolitan Monterrey, the mechanims that primarily generate the
processes of social exclusion are those connected with the cultural-symbolic and political-institutional realms, reflected
in the weakening of social networks, the lack of recognition of social rights and access to civic life, discrimination,
cultural domination and the culture of superiority joining with the paucity of public policy to cope with the different
aspects of exclusion.
