What is urban exclusion?
I think it is the spatial restrictions imposed on certain societal groups as a result of urban expansion/development by the better off people.
Am I close?
Yes, you are close. In the United States, urban exclusion usually takes the form of gated residential communities. In other countries, where allowed, it can also include the denial of other amentites and jobs in certain urban areas. Try Googling the phrase for some examples.
