Global Social Governance


In the context of the global economic crisis, climate change and population growth, considerable debate has been engendered at all levels of governance concerning the implications of economic, environmental and demographic policies for social development, particularly with reference to established and emerging social protection systems, education and training, poverty reduction, health, ageing and wellbeing, and migratory movements.

A Fellows seminar to start exploring these issues was organised in London, UK on 28 July – 3 August 2014 in collaboration with the UK Academy of Social Sciences and the Centre for International Studies at the London School of Economics. Titled “Global Social Governance: Developing international social science research and impacting the policy process” , it brought together 19 Fellows from all over the world. Reports on and impressions of their discussion will be available on this website soon.
