The purpose of an International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP) is to harness the
competence of academics of all relevant disciplines, perspectives, and regions of
the world to assess and synthesize the state-of-the-art knowledge on the principles, possibilities, and methods for improving the main institutions of the modern societies.
The Panel will discuss desirable reforms and structural changes, and examine their feasibility. Consensual conclusions and persisting controversies will be laid out by an interdisciplinary team of social scientists each of whom is willing and able to engage across disciplines to inform scholars, policy makers and social actors on what the best social science can, and cannot, say.
The Panel will produce a Report in three years (autumn 2014 – autumn 2017), with a group of a few hundred authors selected by an international and multidisciplinary Scientific Council co-chaired by Prof. Nancy Fraser, Prof. Helga Nowotny and Prof. Ravi Kanbur,and the drafting process will include collecting comments from a global network of scholars, civil society, activists, governments, and international organizations.
