'Ecuador’s Citizens’ Revolution: from neo-liberal failure to the ‘Ecuadorian miracle’ of the inclusive development model'

Challenging the ideas behind austerity economics, a huge programme of public investment is driving Ecuador's strong economic growth, delivering free healthcare and free education, tackling poverty and creating a more equal society. 

Ecuador is reducing inequality faster than any other Latin America country and the United Nations ranks Ecuador as one of the countries in the world that has most advanced human development in recent years. 

In this seminar, First Secretary at the Embassy of Ecuador in the UK, Fidel Narváez, will examine how Ecuador is being transformed by progressive policies that put people first.
