Abstract

There are an infinite number of ways that the law marginalises groups of people. What is meant here by the word ‘marginalise’ is the sense that the law treats certain groups of people in particular ways: as inferior, less important, different to others, or as members of a periphery, and with the intention of forcing them into or maintaining their positions of powerlessness.
