Extreme Marketplace Exclusion in Subsistence Marketplaces: a Study in a Refugee Settlement in Nakivale, Uganda

Largely excluded from marketing literature are individuals in subsistence marketplaces. We synthesize prior research to identify a phenomenon we term “extreme marketplace exclusion.” We conduct a qualitative study in a refugee settlement to delineate how elements of such exclusion manifest and their interrelationships. We conclude discussing theoretical and practical implications.
