Latin America is a continent marked by entrenched inequality which generates vulnerability. People have fewer opportunities to satisfy their basic needs and cannot exercise or sustain valuable capabilities. For example, inequality in access to education and basic social services limits people’s opportunities to participate actively in economic, social and political life. Therefore, reducing inequality requires an in-depth analysis of the causes and persistence of social exclusion, particularly of specific social groups. The design of social inclusion policies is central to human development and people’s wellbeing. The 2013 HDCA International Conference aims at establishing conceptual frameworks and programmes of action to reduce inequality, vulnerability and social exclusion.
