As one of 50 experts from around the world, our Senior Social Policy Specialist Alexandra Barrantes has written an article in a new Spanish-language book, Derechos sociales y el momento constituyente en Chile (Social Rights and the Constitutional Moment in Chile).

Economic, social, cultural and environmental rights are human rights, and Chile now has the rare opportunity to protect these rights in the country’s new constitution. Launched this month, the book offers insights from around the globe into how this can be done successfully.

Focused on the right to social security, Alexandra’s article considers the implications and opportunities for social protection in Chile presented by the new constitution.

The English translation of the book is coming soon. Read the Spanish language version here.
