The EU-Social Protection Systems Programme (EU-SPS) team attended and presented project’s findings in the joint SOCIEUX+ and AMEXID meeting on employment and social protection systems in Latin America, which was held in Mexico City between 25 and 26 October. The regional meeting was attended by representatives from governments, including the Minister of Labour of El Salvador, academics, and other social protection experts. Caroline Tassot, presented results on gender and informality in 12 Latin American countries from the EU SPS forthcoming report “Tackling Vulnerability in the Informal Economy”, which will be published early 2019. The presentation was well received by the audience,  and emphasised that although globally more men are in the informal economy than women, in certain regions like Latin America there are not only more women in informal work but also they are in the most vulnerable segments of informality, creating repercussions in wage gaps and access to pensions.
