Abstract

This chapter analyzes how public policies afford equity and inclusion issues in higher education in Latin America. Data analysis was based on primary and secondary sources including national and regional reports as well as data bases provided by international agencies. General policies on equity and inclusion were discussed and then analysis was focused on the strategies carried out by Latin American governments and policy makers. It was concluded that regardless of increasing enrollments in higher education equity not necessarily was achieved.
