How can we bring about social justice globally? The IPSP on markets, inequalities and discriminations

Roundtable
Aug 12 2016  9:00 - 11:30

The crisis of social-democracy in recent decades seems, in the rich countries, to have generated a decline of hope for a just society. In developing countries, the trend is now to mimic the developed countries, rather than inventing a new model, and, in spite of reduced poverty in several countries, social hardships reminiscent of the early phase of Western capitalism are widespread.

Can we hope for a better society ?

The International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP) gathers 300 of experts about social issues and in Aug. 2016 releases the first draft of its report addressed to all social actors, movements, organizations, politicians and decision-makers, in order to provide them with the best expertise on questions concerning social change.
