Rafael Correa (born 6 April 1963) is an Ecuadorian politician and economist who was President of Ecuador from 2007 to 2017.
The leader of the PAIS Alliance democratic socialist movement, Rafael Correa's administration focused on reducing poverty and ineguality. Between 2006 and 2016, poverty decreased from 36.7% to 22.5% and annual per capita GDP growth was 1.5 percent (as compared to 0.6 percent over the previous two decades). At the same time, inequalities – as measured by the Gini index – decreased from 0.55 to 0.47.
|Silvina Romano||“Lawfare is a political war through the courts, which uses legal tools improperly for political persecution, which uses the law as a weapon to destroy the adversary. Lawfare operates from high places through a judicial apparatus that rises above the Legislative and Executive Power, expanding the margin of maneuver and power of the judges, paving the way for a growing “juristocracy”.”||Silvina Romano||December 2020|
