Social protection and inequality: Cracks, rigidities, open ground and opportunities

Many of the Latin American countries have increased their social spending significantly in the past few years. Yet the region’s structural lag is such that any conclusions about the performance of social protection in breaking the chains of inequality transmission may be drawn only with caution. So it is important to form a picture of the systemic performance of social protection in reducing inequality in Latin America, by looking at the cracks and rigidities in the region’s social protection systems while also identifying the open ground and opportunities for tackling the many faces of inequality.
