Let's Talk about Policy Innovations for Transformative Change

Katja Hujo, Senior Research Coordinator and Report Coordinator at UNRISD, and Gabriele Koehler, Senior Research Associate at UNRISD, engage in a lively discussion by delving into UNRISD’s 2016 Flagship Report “Policy Innovations for Transformative Change”.

UNRISD’s 2016 Flagship Report proposes to achieve this by putting social and ecological justice at the top of the to-do list and making the economy work for people and planet. The strength of the report lies in the evidence it builds for this argument through a wide range of case studies which show that integrated and coherent policy making with an “eco-social” focus can create more inclusive, equitable and sustainable societies.

Drawing on numerous policy innovations from the South, the report goes beyond buzzwords and brings to the development community a definition of transformation which can be used as a benchmark for policy making towards the 2030 Agenda. Bringing together five years of UNRISD research across six areas— social policy, care policy, social and solidarity economy, eco-social policy, domestic resource mobilization, and politics and governance—the report explores what transformative change really means for societies and individuals. The full report can be found here. Read the news about the webinar here.
