Social Inclusion and Human Rights

The countries of Latin America and the Caribbean are undergoing various processes of social transformation.

While democracies have been consolidating and poverty has decreased in recent years, this region remains one of marked inequalities, exclusion and serious human rights violations.

UNESCO aims to contribute to more inclusive and sustainable societies in Latin America and the Caribbean, promoting solidarity and respect, and seeking the elimination of all forms of discrimination, with a human rights and gender equity approach.

Areas of work of UNESCO's Regional Bureau for Science in Montevideo:

  • Inclusive and anti-discriminatory public policies
  • Human Rights
