Interdependent Inequalities in Latin America: Structures and Negotiations is an interdisciplinary, international, and multi-institutional research network on interdependent inequalities in Latin America. Its specific research profile emphasizes multidimensionality and global interdependencies of social inequalities in Latin America.

As of May 1, 2016, moved into its third phase. In the first two phases (Nov. 2009 – April 2014 and May 2014 – April 2016, respectively), funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) provided countless opportunities in the form of doctoral training programs, fellowships for scholars at all career stages, workshops, public lectures, conference panel presentations, Summer Schools, and international conferences.

We wish to thank the members for all of their efforts in building this network, and especially the members of the Scientific Advisory Board and the Executive Board for their contributions to guiding the development of both intellectual and organizational aspects of the network.

Although the funding from the BMBF has ended, the Lateinamerika-Institut (LAI) of Freie Universität Berlin will continue to provide support for the network including the Executive Secretary, the web site, a platform for visiting scholars with external funding, and a location for related events.

The LAI and the other participating institutions - the Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut, the Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik/German Development Institute, and the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies - will also continue to work on the themes developed in the project.
