Minouche Shafik : What We Owe Each Other: A New Social Contract for a Better Society – Princeton University Press, 2021

  • Baroness Minouche Shafik is the director of the London School of Economics and Political Science.
  • The book takes us through stages of life we all experience—raising children, getting educated, falling ill, working, growing old—and shows how a reordering of our societies is possible. Drawing on evidence and examples from around the world, she shows how every country can provide citizens with the basics to have a decent life and be able to contribute to society. But we owe each other more than this. A more generous and inclusive society would also share more risks collectively and ask everyone to contribute for as long as they can so that everyone can fulfill their potential. What We Owe Each Other identifies the key elements of a better social contract that recognizes our interdependencies, supports and invests more in each other, and expects more of individuals in return.

Minouche Shafik on her new book, What we owe each other: A new social contract – 05.21

  • Why you should watch: Nemat Shafik (or Baroness Shafik, as she is now) follows in the footsteps of another distinguished Director of the LSE, William Beveridge, in putting forward a comprehensive programme for a new ‘social contract’, covering everything from childcare to health to work to the environment to taxation and to care of the elderly and inter-generational conflicts. Based on the opportunities for radical change opened up by the GFC, the Covid pandemic and the widespread feeling that politics are ripe for change, she offers an astonishingly broad-ranging set of ideas pulled from best practise around the world. Can it happen? Well, maybe – note Biden’s American Families Plan and the lifetime learning credit in the latest Queen’s Speech. The direction of travel is clear.

What We Owe Each Other by Minouche Shafik – Hay Festival, 03.21

  • At a time when government seems broken, where can we find a framework for social, economic, and political renewal? In her landmark study, Minouche Shafik, Director of the London School of Economics, draws on evidence from across the globe to identify the key principles every society must adopt if it is to meet the challenges of the coming century, with profound implications for gender equality, education, healthcare provision, the role of business and the future of work.

What We Owe Each Other: a new social contract – LSE Festival, 03.21

  • LSE Director Minouche Shafik is joined by Nobel Laureates Professor Amartya Sen and Juan Manuel Santos to launch her new book “What We Owe Each Other: a new social contract”.
