Espacio Público is a multidisciplinary, independent, think tank that seeks to contribute to the public debate and to improve the design and implementation of public policies, with the goal of creating better opportunities for all.
Many low-income countries of the world have reached a middle-income status in the last 50 years, but only a handful of them have evolved to becoming a truly developed country. Espacio Publico’s mission seeks to address the questions and challenges that countries face in the development process. While our activities are primarily focused in Chile, we believe our work can also provide useful insights and make a contribution to decision-makers in other emerging economies.
Our work focuses on eight priority areas: cities and territorial development, antitrust and consumer protection, democracy and governance, diversity and inclusion, education, healthcare, youth and employment, and natural resources and sustainability.
