TALKS l Neoliberalism in Retreat – a new deal for Latin American women? : 28th September, London

Latin America has been, and continues to be both pioneer and zone of experiment in a wide variety of domains. Its innovations in such areas as local governance, social protection and indigenous and women’s rights were propelled by democratic social movements and left-of-centre governments which increasingly rejected or diluted the neoliberal tenets of the Washington Consensus. Today, with several major Latin American countries pursuing more heterodox approaches to economic management, and the majority committed to tackling poverty and inequality, this lecture considers the degree to which these new developments are addressing the deeply rooted gender inequalities that characterise the Latin American region.

Maxine Molyneux is Professor of Sociology and Director of the Institute for the Study of the Americas, at the School of Advanced Study, University of London, where she teaches and supervises Doctoral students on Latin American Development policy and practice, gender, politics, social policy, memory and migration.

She has written extensively in the fields of political sociology, gender and development, human rights and social policy, and has authored books on Latin America, Ethiopia and South Yemen. She has acted as senior adviser, consultant and researcher to UNRISD, and has undertaken funded research for the UK’s Department for International Development, the ILO, and other development policy agencies. Her current research is on social protection, rights, and citizenship and the link between economic and social policy in Latin America.

Maxine Molyneux is on the Editorial Boards of Economy and Society, the Journal of Latin American Studies, and Development and Change. She is the editor of the ISA/Palgrave ‘Studies of the Americas’ Series and the ISA in-house book series.
