Inequality and Social Inclusion in the Americas

File Created On:
November, 2015

Inequality, which at its most extreme leads to social exclusion, has been the target of a special focus by the Organization of the American States. Addressing this issue encompasses all the key pillars of our work: integral development, democracy, human rights and public security.
This publication is aimed at concisely exposing the principal problems of inequality and exclusion being faced by the Americas today, examining how it might be possible to tackle them and informing about the
work that the OAS is contributing or can contribute to this effort. The articles comprising the present publication have been written by professionals that are at the helm of our work in each one of these areas
and this is what gives them their unique value. They are not formal statements of official OAS policy. Rather they are the outcome of their many years of thought and experience in this field.
