Inclusión social como desafío para las sociedades democráticas en Latinoamérica

Law, as an instrument of regulation of social life, must consider current social phenomena in order to generate responses consistent with the model of democratic society that governs us. However, in Latin America in general, and in Chile in particular, there are profound social and economic inequalities due to poverty and the great asymmetry in the distribution of income, which has resulted in high rates of social exclusion, disintegration, and fragmentation of these societies. Likewise, we observe a strong process of cultural and social diversification, which entails important challenges for these political systems. Thus, life in society implies a duty of solidarity that is expressed in the need to attend these social inequalities? Is the concept of social inclusion an effective tool to response these inequalities?
