Welfare, employment and social protection in Latin America

Talking to Prof. Armando Barrientos from University of Manchester, we explore some of the challenges Latin America and the Caribbean are facing in the field of social policies.

Is tax policy the most important instrument in reducing inequality? In our region, can we consider progressive taxation with progressive expenditure and redistribution? Is a new social contract necessary? How can we address inequalities technically and politically?

With vast research experience in countries of Latin America, Africa and other regions, Prof. Barrientos undertakes an important reflection on social policies based on concrete situations.
