Spanish translation of 2013 World Social Science Report publishedpublished: February 2, 2017
A Spanish translation of the 2013 World Social Science Report: Changing Global Environments has been published by CLACSO (the Latin American Council of Social Sciences) under the title Informe mundial sobre ciencias sociales: Cambios ambientales globales.
The full Report, which contains 108 articles by some 150 authors from all over the world, is translated into Spanish in its entirety and is available for open access download.
The World Social Science Report 2013 issues an urgent call to action to the international social science community to collaborate more effectively with each other, with colleagues from other fields of science, and with the users of research to deliver solutions-oriented knowledge on today’s most pressing environmental problems. It calls for a transformative social science that is bolder, better, bigger, different:
- bolder in reframing and reinterpreting global environmental change as a social problem
- better at infusing social science insights into real-world problem-solving
- bigger in terms of having more social scientists to focus on global environmental change
- different in the way it thinks about and does research that helps meet the vexing sustainability challenges faced today.
A Spanish translation of the Executive Summary of the 2013 Report is also available for download (published 2013).
We are extremely grateful to CLACSO, which is a member of the ISSC, for undertaking the translation and publication of this Report.
