World Social Science Report 2013: Changing Global Environments

Prepared by the International Social Science Council and co-published with UNESCO and the OECD. ISBN: 9789264203419 (PDF); 9789264203402 (print); DOI: 10.1787/9789264203419-en

November 2013

Global environmental change is about people. The World Social Science Report 2013, prepared by the International Social Science Council and co-published with UNESCO and the OECD, argues that social science needs to be at the heart of understanding and responding to global challenges such as climate change, pollution, resource limits and planetary boundaries to economic growth.
 
Drawing on contributions from 150 scholars from around the world, the report issues an urgent call to the international social science community to collaborate more effectively with each other, with colleagues from other fields of science, and with users of research to deliver solutions-oriented knowledge for today's most pressing environmental problems. It calls for a transformative social science that is:

  •  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
