Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University


Social Action, Community Planning, and Public Policy is an area that the Stone Center is actively promoting as a new area for common faculty initiatives. The goal is to define projects that cut across not only the traditional divisions among society, politics, and economy, but also the practices of professional programs dedicated to protecting human rights, providing human and community services that improve human health and welfare, and developing models that promote greater social, political, and economic equity in Latin America and the Caribbean.
