"Extending the coverage of pension systems is the most important challenge in building social protection systems in Latin America today. This book responds to this challenge by exploring the relationship between social security, the labor market and the productive system. It contains not only a detailed diagnosis of the current situation in the region, but also concrete proposals on how to respond to the existing challenges based on the realities of each country. A fundamental work for academics, public policymakers and all who aspire to make social protection a reality in the region."
