Exchanging Experiences, Expanding Opportunities

IASPD 5 - "The Social Dimension of the MERCOSUR"

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 - 10:30 to 11:45

A few months ago, the MERCOSUR Social Institute published  a book called “The Social Dimension of the MERCOSUR: A Conceptual Framework,” which seeks to conceptualize Social Issues in its Member States and to expand the debate to encompass more than just the specific topic related to political actors who are directly responsible for public management. The publication also includes debates and conclusions on the meaning of the social dimension of regional integration and what its implications are in the arena of designing and implementing public policies in the MERCOSUR.


Some guiding questions for this event are:


1.   What does the social dimension of the MERCOSUR consist of? And, what is the                elevance of this dimension in the regional integration process?

2.     How can the vision of the Southern Cone be contextualized within the regional tendencies on this topic?

3.     How is this conceptual framework linked to the Strategic Social Protection Plan (PEAS)?

4.     What are the challenges that the MERCOSUR agenda faces?
