CitationThe Implementation Process of Affirmative Action Measures in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Peru. In: Howard, Erica; Domínguez, Elvira; Báez, Narciso: Affirmative Action and the Law. Efficacy of National and International Approaches. Routledge, Abingdon, chapter 6 : (2020)
AbstractThis book examines the role of temporary affirmative action measures in redressing structural inequalities suffered by designated groups. It presents a comparison of affirmative action measures and the actual experience in implementing them. The work addresses the theoretical framework informing the design of such measures and the international framework aimed at setting global standards and influencing the direction of national policies in this field. It then seeks to assess the progress of such legal and policy measures in Central and South America, China, India, South Africa and the United Kingdom. This collective research effort, based on a wider collaboration between researchers based in Latin America and Europe purports to provide a counter-narrative to the prevalent argument that human rights are failing because they are inadequate in countering inequality. The book will be a valuable resource for students and academics in the field of human rights, law, sociology and politics. It will also provide a source of good practice for states and policy makers in the framing of responses to increased inequality at national and international level; and for civil society actors seeking to explore meaningful interaction with a highly controversial topic in society.
