Reflections for a political agenda: discussion of structural and social inequality

Reflexiones para una agenda política: debates estructurales y desigualdad social

The need to plot a path that does not leave us in the gutter of the irreversible, has led us to prepare two numbers, under the heading of “Reflections for a policy agenda”, presented different content.

The first of them, the reader now has in his hands (Discussion of structural and social inequality) is focused to a framework of exploratory on the structure and the context. The second is to policy proposals more concrete.

In this issue we treat the temporal context and spatial structural issues that should be seen with perspective, with the eye towards the past, observing the present and exploring the future. To analyse the situation in this way allows you to stand out, and we can gain a sense of objectivity and possibility of contrast –with other times and other places in the geographical space, in order to propose changes more fruitful that we will see light the next number.
