Racial and Ethnic Inequality in Latin America: Reflections Toward a New Social and Economic Development Model

Marcelo Paixão
Associate Professor
LLILAS, AADS

Tuesday, Sept. 29, Noon
Benson 2nd Floor Conference Room, SRH 1.208
Light lunch served | Free and open to the public


Associate Professor Marcelo Paixão will discuss his current research project at African and African Diaspora Studies (AADS) and LLILAS, including a general analysis of the current Latin American sociopolitical scenario, why ethnic and racial relations and inequalities matter in the region, the importance of social indicators disaggregated by minorities groups, and future research he plans to carry out at The University of Texas at Austin.

Paixão has written several articles about racial inequalities in Brazil, such as, "Confronting Race and Inequality in Brazil" and "Educational Performance and Race in Brazil." He has pointed out that dark-skinned people are systematically excluded from the means that would allow them to secure social rights, attain upward social mobility, and gain public visibility for their cause.

He is author of the "Relatório Anual das Desigualdades Raciais no Brasil: 2009-2010," and "The Paradox of the “Good” Student: Race and the Brazilian Education System," in which he provides a detailed analysis of educational gaps by race in Brazil.

Paixão’s recent research about race and data in Latin America has been supported by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
