President Lagos warns that deepening social divisions are menacing democracies worldwide

Former President of Chile and Club de Madrid Member, Ricardo Lagos, has written an article in Argentina's newspaper Clarin, where he is a regular contributor, reflecting on how to tackle what he perceives as one of the biggest challenges for democracies around the world: deep social divisions that are not finding an answer from current political leaders and elites.

Mr. Lagos thinks that the progressive parties and leaders must take the lead to find those answers and put the focus on one word, solidarity, and one strategy, leaving no one behind and making sure that the benefits of progress reach every individual and every social segment. 

Accoding to the former President of Chile, the social gap we are witnessing must be filled with new and concrete proposals capable of bringing together broad mayorities of citizens around common values and goals.
