Montevideo, Uruguay -- New research center on poverty, family, and education
After several years of research, the Faculty of Business Management at the University of Montevideo inaugurated the “Center for Applied Research: Poverty, Family and Education.” Its aim is to carry out rigorous research on the most pressing social questions in the country, especially those related to poverty, the family and education. It will also attempt to provide suggestions for action to politicians and other social agencies. The new entity counts on the help of other centers such as the Center for the Study of the Economy and Society at Cornell University, the Social Trends Institute in Barcelona, and the United Nations International Poverty Center in Brazil.
