The IPSP report is published!
After four years of drafting, debating, rethinking, and revising, the IPSP report is finally published! This work represents an incredible effort from our 200+ 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 International Panel on Social Progress is uniting the world’s leading researchers from social sciences and the humanities in a single effort: Developing research-based, multi-disciplinary, non-partisan, action-driven solutions to the most pressing challenges of our time.
