The research seminar took place on 3 July 2024 at the Research Institute for Philosophy in Hanover. The Institute for Social Strategy and the Institute for World Ethos in Tübingen also participated. The program of the event included a plenary report, presentations by the participants and case discussions.

The discussion on strategic guidelines for the development of the Inclusivity Index was proposed by Prof. Dr. Dr. Dr. h.c. Ulrich Hemel. In his evening presentation “Human Globalisation and Inclusive Development as a Path to the Global Common Good” he focused on the problem of the Inclusivity Index for global strategy and answered questions from participants.

On 3 July, the main points of Prof. Hemel’s presentation were discussed in more detail. Dr Jürgen Manemann, Director of the Hanover Institute of Philosophy, analysed the normative and philosophical dimension of social strategy using indices. His presentation was the springboard for the discussion that followed.

Frederic Klär (Institute for Social Strategy) spoke about the methodology for calculating the Inclusivity Index. He highlighted the importance of analysing country profiles. A practical analysis of several country profiles was presented by Nurzat Sultanalieva (Institute of Social Strategy). She focused on the problem of fighting corruption in order to achieve the goals of the Global Social Strategy on the example of Central Asia.

Dr Valery Goncharov (Institute of Social Strategy) addressed the issue of visualising the Inclusivity Index and spoke about the project to create an Inclusivity Index Dashboard. Dr Anna Weber and Hannah Wendt (MA) from the Hanover Institute of Philosophy actively participated in the discussion. The scientific event resulted in feedback on the Inclusivity Index and suggestions for further improvement of tools for measuring social strategies.
