About the product

Recent pension reforms in Latin America have not contributed to solving the problem of social security for women but have in fact, made individuals more vulnerable in terms of social safety nets. This study aims to analyze ways in which the principles of obligatory affiliation to the system may be reconciled with inequities inherent in labour segmentation. Pension legislation was examined in the cases of four Latin American countries, identifying the gender-differentiated effects of the reforms in each country.
