More information

With a wave of elections in 2018, the political landscape in Latin America will undergo significant change. One of the key challenges facing new administrations across the region will be reversing inequalities broadly understood, including income, health, gender, race. 

This creates opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovators to develop solutions to social challenges such as income inequality. Queen Mary values diversity of thought and aims to create an environment which fosters and supports the development of ideas, which can lead to positive social change.
