The first meeting of the Lead Authors of the International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP) was held in Turkey at İstanbul Bilgi University, Istanbul in August 2015. It was the first general gathering of the authors and launched the panel. The goal of the meeting was to discuss the general orientation of the report and the method followed in the drafting of the report; to let chapter teams meet separately and finalize their outline; to coordinate the work of various chapters on cross-cutting issues. The meeting was accompanied by a public lecture given by panel members. During the meeting, a team interviewed the authors for the preparation of video documentaries that are being prepared as a supplement of the report. A press conference announced the launch of the panel.
