IPSP-ASAP Spain will be hosting a event in Barcelona on the 17th June 2019 hosted by UPF Planetary Wellbeing.
Planetary Wellbeing is a new project or rather a project of projects at Pompeu Fabra University to encourage researchers at UPF to focus on research that can improve the state of the planet and all those who live in it, and to facilitate collaboration between those already channeling their energy in this direction. It contains institutions inside UPF like IS Global (Institute for Global Health (https://www.isglobal.org/en ) and externally funded projects such as my own “Justice, Legitimacy and Global Institutions”.
The International Panel on Social Progress https://www.ipsp.org/ is a very large scale enterprise conceived (with the IPCC in mind) to gather information from hundreds of scientists on what is social progress, and what are the best ways to promote it and monitor it.

The debate will use evidenced based research to challenge the underpinning assumptions currently driving migration related decision making processes.

Convening thought leaders in policy, research and civil society this discussion series challenges the wider framing of austerity politics and asks the question, where do we go from here?
This colloquium will be the first in a series and will explore the ways in which policy makers and other influential actors can shift negative attitudes towards migrants and migration, and identify what positive citizenship looks like in this context. The colloquium will be convened to determine what effective inclusive economy, migration policy and processes should look like in a shared societies context. We define an inclusive economy as one which there is better systems and opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity especially for those facing the greatest barriers to advancing their well-being.
