Transformative Cornerstones of Social Science Research for Global Change

June, 2012

In the context of its Climate and Global Environmental Change Design Project, the International Social Science Council (ISSC) has worked with the support of Swedish Sida and the cooperation of key partners to develop a consolidated, global social science research agenda on climate and global environmental change.

The results of this work have now been published in a report on The Transformative Cornerstones of Social Science Research for Global Environmental Change.

This key output synthesizes and interprets the results of an international consultative process that included a survey of researchers from the social, behavioural and economic sciences, as well as historians and philosophers. It forms the basis for a proposed 10-year global research funding and coordination programme, and is further intended to inform social science work on global environmental change within the ISSC and beyond.
