Social policy paradigms in Latin America

In recent years, a new development model has arisen in Latin America whose spread has been facilitated by the changes which have taken place in the world economy (globalization, technological innovation) and their repercussions on the region. A consensus has been generated in respect of the model’s economic tenets, and there is also widespread agreement -which is gradually being reflected in concrete measures- on the role that should be assigned to the State. With regard to social policies, an awareness has been growing -with some difficulty- of the limitations of the traditional way of implementing them and the need to develop new criteria on their design and application.
