Book description

This is the second of three volumes containing a report from the International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP). The IPSP is an independent association of top research scholars with the goal of assessing methods for improving the main institutions of modern societies. Written in accessible language by scholars across the social sciences and humanities, these volumes assess the achievements of world societies in past centuries, the current trends, the dangers that we are now facing, and the possible futures in the twenty-first century. It covers the main socio-economic, political, and cultural dimensions of social progress, global as well as regional issues, and the diversity of challenges and their interplay around the world. This particular volume covers topics such as democracy and the rule of law, violence and wars, international organizations and global governance, and media and communications.

Reviews

Advance praise:'This ambitious project with contributions from more than 300 scholars engages in true interdisciplinary dialogue to consider the evolution of society and possibilities for long-term social change. Professors who teach on globalization, political and economic sociology, social justice, and similar topics will find this to be a very useful tool.'

Kumari Jawayardena - Colombo University

Advance praise:'A masterful, innovative, and challenging work by a highly qualified team of social scientists, which provides a wide, coherent set of insightful and penetrating analyses of the long-term structural processes of twenty-first century society with special regard to change-makers. The three volumes share the global, interdisciplinary approach of the International Social Science Council and the perspective of 2016 World Social Science Report on 'Challenging Inequalities'. They will provide a fundamental contribution to the implementation of the sustainable development goals of UN 2030 Agenda.'

Alberto Martinelli - President of the International Social Science Council
