The paper briefly examines the literature that criticises the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from a Latin American perspective. It presents some key stylised facts of development from the contemporary history of the region. It focuses on three structural features of Latin American development, namely, inequality, conflict and low State capacity. Finally, it discusses the relevance and adequacy of some MDGs and targets based on the theoretical criticisms and empirical evidence examined earlier. It concludes by offering suggestions for the post-2015 global development agenda.
