Her current research is on Latin American social policy with a particular focus on the recent efforts to reduce poverty in the region.

Inaugural lecture by Professor Maxine Molyneux:
By 2050 it is estimated that one quarter of the US population or 100 million persons will be of Latin American descent. In recent years some 14 million migrants left Central America to make the often dangerous journey to 'El Norte'. This lecture examines the character of recent trends from a Latin American perspective and considers the social, political and economic consequences of migration.
