The International Panel on Social Progress unites many of the world’s leading researchers from social sciences and the humanities in a single effort: developing research-based, multi-disciplinary, non-partisan, action-driven solutions to pressing challenges of our time. On 8 June, this workshop will engage several authors of its first, comprehensive Report in a debate with policy-makers and researchers from UK and international organisations.
