Through the International Panel for Social Progress, an international and interdisciplinary group of 300 academic experts have come together to discuss and provide solutions for a sustainable future with structural freedom and equality for all. In addition to an extensive scientific report, such discussions have also resulted in a manifesto. The manifesto has been translated into Dutch as “For Social Progress: Professors on the Barricades.” The book presentation will be held on May 7 at the University KU Leuven at the Center for Economics and Ethics in Belgium. Among the speakers include Marc Fleurbaey of the steering committee, Philippe Van Parijs of the scientific council, and Frank Vandenbroucke of University KU Leuven.

For more information, see the announcement on the KUL website and the Dutch-translated manuscript.
