SEMINAR (UNRISD Seminar Series): How Costa Rica Achieved the Elusive Double Incorporation

4 March 2014 | Geneva, Switzerland

Few developing countries have succeeded in simultaneously providing good jobs and access to social services for all. Yet Costa Rica has experienced one of the most successful efforts in securing double incorporation of job creation and expansion of social services among developing countries.

• How has Costa Rica achieved its unique success?
• What lessons can other small developing countries learn from Costa Rica?

In this Seminar Diego Sánchez-Ancochea (University Lecturer, University of Oxford) will discuss his recent book, co-authored with CROP Scientific Committee member Juliana Martínez Franzoni, on Costa Rica´s historical success and recent challenges in securing the elusive double incorporation. The research was carried out as part of the UNRISD project, Poverty Reduction and Policy Regimes.

The seminar is held 12:30–14:00, Tuesday 4 March at D19, Palais des Nations.
