After four years of work, the International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP) has launched its report on “Rethinking Society for the 21st Century” in July 2018. The report recognizes a global loss of faith in both socialism and capitalism since the 1990’s and therefore dares to ask existential questions about the roots within our societies, striving for an answer to the question in what kind of society we want to live in. The report includes not only insights from the whole variety of social sciences but also perspectives from all geographical and cultural backgrounds. The report sees current progress threatened by several challenges and wishes to address these in order to benefit a wide majority of the world’s population. It acknowledges that there is a vast amount of different ideas and perspectives on how to create progress that can be applied to different contexts.
