International Panel on Social Progress

Rethinking Society for the 21st Century

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.

You can read the executive summary of the report here!

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 book is now available on Amazon or from the CUP website.
