The objective of desiguALdades.net is to work towards a paradigmatic shift in the research on social inequalities in Latin America. The intersections of different types of social inequalities and the global interdependencies of local constellations of social inequalities beyond the nation-state are at the focus of analysis. In order to achieve this paradigmatic shift, researchers who are experts on social inequalities or on Latin America will work together. The network character of desiguALdades.net is explicitly set up to overcome persisting hierarchies in knowledge production in the social sciences by developing new forms of academic practices based on dialogue and mutual exchange between researchers from different regional and different disciplinary contexts.
