This chapter outlines the context for the detailed discussions that follow on how rurality and rural planning might compound sectional exclusions according to the criteria of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability and age. We first review a recent approach to rural social inclusion, Mark Shucksmith’s ‘good countryside’ drawing on Ash Amin, and then inform further debate with summaries on how research on exclusions, identities and rural planning practice have developed thus far. In the conclusion we point out the need for work on the intersectionality of exclusions highlighting common problems in rural planning research, such as selective case studies and contexts dominating the research arena.
