On the Political Economy of Labor Market and Social Reforms in Latin America

The project will investigate the political and structural obstacles to the universalization of labor standards within the context of Latin American labor markets. It will explore the possibilities for transforming Latin American labor markets and universalizing standards of decent work by institutionalizing them as social rights.

Expected Contribution to the Decent Work Agenda

The project will help to identify obstacles in the implementation of a Decent Work Agenda in Latin America, as well as analyze the conditions under which the emergence of broad reform coalitions is made more likely.
