Inequalities in Latin America and the Caribbean: Research, Policy and Management for Social Transformations

Inequalities are one of the main challenges facing Latin America and the Caribbean and are a constant concern for their governments. As pointed out in the latest UNESCO World Social Science Report, as well as in the ECLAC Report on "The Matrix of Social Inequality in Latin America", inequalities must not only be understood from an economic point of view, they must also be studied and intervened from political, social, cultural, racial, ethnic, territorial and gender perspectives, whose permanent interaction generates a vicious circle of inequalities
