Social Pact for More Inclusive Social Protection





Why a Social Pact?

In the context of the economic and social challenges facing Latin America and the Caribbean associated with the region's condition as the most unequal on earth, CEPAL raised in Time for Equality: Closing Gaps, Opening Trails (2010) the need for a new equation between state, market, and society, founded on broad and inclusive social and fiscal pacts that begin to close gaps in productivity, capacities, and wellbeing. These ideas have been developed further in the reports Structural Change for Equality: An Integrated Approach to Development (2012) and Compacts for Equality: towards a Sustainable Future (2014).

About the Project

In keeping with this proposal, the project Social Pact for More Inclusive Social Protection seeks to support governments through the development of studies, the generation of methodological tools, and the accompaniment of dialogue processes, in order to move forward with and reach broad social pacts relating to a more inclusive social protection. The project is implemented by the Social Development Division and forms part of the ECLAC/BMZ-GIZ Joint Program on Low-Carbon Growth and Social Cohesion in Latin America.

The papers gathered in the following publication were presented at the International Seminar "Social pacts for a more inclusive social protection: experiences, obstacles and possibilities in Latin America and Europe", held at ECLAC's headquarters in Santiago, on March 20th and 21st 2013.
