Combining empirical rigour and theoretical complexity, the book makes a strong case that it is time for “an unconditionality paradigm” to emerge and argues that this could be anchored in Universal Basic Income (UBI).

Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary. Written by a global collective of scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds, including health studies, psychology and economics as well as social policy and gerontology, this timely Research Agenda highlights the challenges and opportunities of rising longevity and population ageing for social policy providing clear directions for future research. Divided into five comprehensive parts, this Research Agenda examines research priorities from policy perspectives, the role of social policy research in relation to intergovernmental organisations, and the framework for future-oriented social policies on ageing provided by a life-course approach. It demonstrates that social policy experts must evaluate interests and expectations both qualitatively and quantitatively, and asserts that future research on social policy and ageing will be inspired by a broad range of stakeholders, including non-governmental interest organisations and state actors. A Research Agenda for Ageing and Social Policy will be enlightening for students and researchers focusing on social policy, ageing, development, health policy and inequality. It will also be a fascinating read for practitioners seeking a wider understanding of social policy priorities and processes. Kai Leichsenring is Executive Director and Alexandre Sidorenko is Senior Advisor at the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research, affiliated to the United Nations at Vienna, Austria.

In particular, the editors have taken great care to differentiate by project type, stakeholder group, and project phase, helping to disentangle the complexity of SIA in practice. The book never loses sight of the core purpose of SIA: to appropriately assess and manage the social impacts of projects, thereby contributing to more sustainable and equitable outcomes. It is therefore an essential contribution to better project management and, hopefully, to the well-being of affected communities.
