The International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP) is an independent association of top research scholars with the goal of assessing methods for improving the main institutions of modern societies. The IPSP has produced a report consisting of twenty-two chapters in three volumes that distills the research of these scholars and outlines what the best social science has to say about positive social change. 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. The authors offer a cautious optimistic conclusion: multiple ideas for social progress and better policies are already available and deserve to be tested and implemented.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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, University of Colombo, Sri Lanka
'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
