Abstract

The Left is defined, at its core, by its commitment to advance the rights of the poor and disenfranchised. Through redistributive social and economic policies, the Left has classically aimed to ensure that citizens' basic needs are met so as to advance a more just and equal society. This general statement, however, begs the question of how the Latin American Left has viewed and prioritized that commitment.
