A Manifesto for Social Progress
Ideas for a Better Society
Furthermore, Marc Fleurbaey is the driving force behind the International Panel on Social Progress. The panel is made up of 300 scholars with a broad view on today’s most important risks and challenges. They formulate innovative answers to the question how we can improve agencies and policies to fight inequality, segregation, intolerance, exclusion and violence.
In his Skype lecture, Marc Fleurbaey will highlight the essentials of his work ‘A Manifesto for Social Progress: Ideas for a Better Society’.
“The Manifesto for Social Progress is a call for action in front of important challenges that threaten the progress made in human development since WWII. We need to address rising inequalities, political turmoil, and environmental destruction simultaneously if we want to build a sustainable future. The aim of the manifesto is to propose a vision of how this can be done, by some decisive but realistic reforms to economic and political institutions.”
