Advances in Well-Being: Toward a Better World

Advances in Well-Being: Toward a Better World

Authors: Richard J. Estes and M. Joseph Sirgy

Congratulations to long-time ISQOLS members on the publication of their new book!


Media and research tend to focus on social problems in today's world - from terrorism and natural disasters to environmental degradation, conflict and economic decline. Yet many countries are also placing the promotion of well-being central at the heart of their social agenda. So what can we say about human progress and the development of civilization? This book considers the brighter side of our world today by exploring the ways in which wellbeing is on an upward swing globally.

Systematically considering indicators of human well-being in terms of economics, health and education, alongside subjective notions of wellbeing, the book draws together research and data from around the world. It uses the United Nations Development Programme's Human Development Index as an underlying framework from which to examine the ways in which wellbeing has improved since WWII. Analysing leading scholarship and empirical work allows the authors to determine policy recommendations for how we might continue to build a better world of human wellbeing.
