Policy in Latin America
every country’s development process, macroeconomic
growth is filtered down to individuals mainly by means of their
employment. Latin America’s development experience over
the last decade is now acknowledged to have been disappointing
if we consider the poor performance of labor markets and the
persistently high poverty rates, especially given the hopes that
compliance with the reform policies of the Washington Consensus
had generated. This course will explore the reasons for this
poor performance from the perspective of employment policy and
its links to issues of poverty and income distribution.
Kirsten Sehnbruch received her Ph.D. from Cambridge University
and has worked as a consultant to the Chilean government on a
range of issues. She is currently a visiting scholar at the Center
for Latin American Studies. Her book The Chilean Labor Market will
be published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2006.
