Please join Americas Society and Council of the Americas for a public event on social inclusion in the Americas and the role of the public and private sectors.
This event will serve as a preliminary roundtable discussion for the Spring issue of Americas Quarterly, which will focus on the economic and political dynamics of social inclusion. This issue of AQ will attempt to untangle the different aspects of social inclusion: social policy, political representation, social and human rights, economic growth and non-discrimination, and will cover topics including the political inclusion of Afro-descendant and Indigenous communities, the importance of social mobility to business and investment, and measuring comparative social inclusion.
