International Panel on Social Progress
Rethinking Society for the 21st Century
After four years of drafting, debating, rethinking, and revising, the IPSP report was published in 2018. This work represents an incredible effort from our 260+ authors all around the world.
Entitled “Rethinking Society for the 21st Century,” the report is available from Cambridge University Press in multiple forms: as a 3-volume set, as separate volumes, and as a Kindle e-book. Please visit the CUP website for information about how to get the book.
In addition to the full report, several IPSP members have written a companion book entitled “A Manifesto for Social Progress: Ideas for a Better Society.” This smaller volume brings together the key messages of the IPSP report and re-examines them through a new lens.
The Manifesto is now available in English, French, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Deutch, Chinese, Greek.
Filmmakers Sofie Wolthers and Eileen Jerrett have created a documentary about the work of the IPSP. The film is available online!
