Vulnerability, Development, and Social Protection in Latin America|
Spring 2010 not offered
|Certificates: Environmental Studies, International Relations|
Using a political economy approach, this course examines strategies for economic development in Latin America, its impact on social protection, and socioeconomic outcomes. This examination will emphasize the diversity of economic realities in the region and investigate the reasons why this is the case. We will then discuss the role of social protection in enhancing living standards and how national and multilateral organizations articulate social protection frameworks. Finally, we will look at individual cases and assess coverage of social risks using public-led schemes, market-based instruments, and informal arrangements.
