UNITED NATIONS, April 16 — The Latin American countries with greatest numbers of conflicts are those with broad social inequalities and governments with limited capacity to manage unrest, said a report released on Tuesday in English by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
The report, titled “Understanding Social Conflict in Latin America,” revealed that social, institutional and cultural tensions in Latin America are numerous, compared to other regions, and were characterized by a high degree of citizen participation.

According to the report, Bolivia, Peru and Argentina were the countries with the highest number of social conflicts, with more than 200 cases for each of the countries, while those with the lowest levels of unrest were Costa Rica, Chile and El Salvador, with an average of 58 conflicts each.
