This concept describes the new conditions of social weakness suddenly created by the turmoil in society, which are qualitatively different from poverty, although they often overlap with it in practice. Examination of the transition in Albania has identified two main conditions of vulnerability: (a) social exclusion, which marginalizes people via the mechanism of rejection from mainstream society; and (b) gender abuse, which marginalizes women via the threat or use of violence. This has gotten worse since the demise of the Communist regime, which forbade violence against women.
