Professor Alberto Minujin serves as Editor on two editions of Buenos Aires-based journal ‘Voces en el Fénix’
Equity for Children Director Alberto Minujin served as Editor for two special editions of the Buenos Aires-based journal entitled, ‘Voces en el Fénix’ (‘Voices in the Pheonix’). The academic journal stems from a group of economists called ‘Plan Fénix’ or ‘Cátedra Abierta Plan Fénix’ within the Faculty of Economics at the University of Buenos Aires, who since the year 2000 have been discussing central problems of Argentina’s economy and proposing various short and long-term solutions to alleviating the current crisis. The content within the two special issues (No. 22 and No. 23) focus on diverse issues surrounding poverty, in which Professor Minujin lent his expertise to help carefully craft and lead to publication.
On 26 March 2013, Professor Minujin participated in a presentation entitled ‘Pobreza: una asignatura compleja’ (‘Poverty: A complex subject’) held at the University of Buenos Aires to discuss the special editions of ‘Voces en el Fénix’ that are planned for publication in the upcoming months. In addition to Professor Minujin, participants in the presentation included Abraham Leonardo Gak, Director of Cátedra Abierta Plan Fénix; Ana Grondona, Researcher at the Instituto de Investigaciones Gino Germani in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Buenos Aires (IIGG-UBA); Raúl Mercer, Coordinator of the Social Sciences and Health Program in the Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences (FLASCO); and José Luis Moreno, Consulting Professor in the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts at the University of Buenos Aires (FFyL-UBA).
