Abstract: Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the regions in the world with the greatest ethnic, racial and cultural diversity. This diversity is a major asset that holds the key to achieving lasting economic and political stability and constructing a fair, cohesive and democratic society. However, the region must overcome a long and divisive history of exclusionary practices that have only left societies poorer, divided, unequal and blind to diversity and its riches. This book examines the discrimination and disadvantages endured by the poor, minorities, women, the disabled and people with HIV/AIDS. It proposes inclusionary policies to improve access by these groups to the social services and economic and political resources they need.
