Latin America and the Caribbean in a development trap: rethinking redistribution to address inequalities


This chapter aims firstly at exploring the implications of inequalities for democracy and crime in LAC. The role of contextual factors and both the limitations and successes of existing social and fiscal policy measures in addressing inequalities are also examined with the purpose of identifying innovative and systemic responses. Thirdly, renewed international cooperation is discussed for a sustainable and welfare-enhancing financial support for the most fragile populations in the region.
