Martín Caparrós, Adela Cortina and Juan Carlos Flórez in conversation with Leopoldo Fergusson

The curse of inequality

Cartagena 2022, 

The real root of social problems in the Latin American region is inequality, which generates economic and, as a result, educational, health and legal differences for millions of people. How is it possible to counter this profound and deeply-rooted problem, which also combines with variables such as race and gender? Can and should governments fight it through comprehensive policies? What happens to the rights and duties of citizenship in an unequal society? Leopoldo Fergusson will talk to the writer and journalist Martín Caparrós (Argentina), the philosopher Adela Cortina (Spain), and the writer Juan Carlos Flórez (Colombia).
