Abstract (EN)Before the 1990s, poverty alleviation programs usually relied on donations in kind, but during the decade, through Latin American countries, there was a shift in favour of monetary income transfers tied to specific eligibility criteria or conditionalities. Generally speaking, however, their contribution to poverty reduction is relatively modest, and focuses on alleviating extreme poverty. In addition, although they continue to expand around the globe, these schemes fail to be shaped as an unconditional right and are unlikely to address resource inequality.
