The Expansion of Cash Transfers in Chile and its Challenges: Ethical Family Income,

The Expansion of Cash Transfers in Chile and its Challenges: Ethical Family Income, Simone Cecchini, Claudia Robles and Luis Hernán Vargas discuss the various innovations that the new Ethical Family Income (Ingreso Ético Familiar) programme brings with regards to the well-known Chile Solidario. The authors focus on the significant expansion in the amounts and types of cash transfers (unconditional and conditional) which are now organized under the three fundamental pillars of dignity, duties and achievements. They also discuss the new emphasis placed on enhancing the household’s income generation capacities. This critical shift, they note, entails new forms of labour market support and employment subsidies to increase women’s labour force participation in a country which otherwise has one of the lowest rates in the region.  (click here for the Spanish version)
