Social progress in the modern world has become an absolute priority and a criterion of economic success. In Russia, which, according to the Constitution, is a social state, social development issues have been at the epicenter of the socio-economic agenda in recent decades. Measures for the development of key areas such as demography, labor market, social protection of vulnerable groups, family policy, etc., concern the individual, the family and society as a whole, and the institutions for their implementation are the framework of the entire social system of the country. Successful social development requires clearly defined goals and a system of measures to achieve them. The Social Development Strategy of the Russian Federation until 2030, which is currently under development, is aimed at solving this problem.
• Current social development challenges — where do we start?
• What social processes will come to the fore in the mid to late 2020s?
• How should the strategy being developed today differ from the priorities of previous periods?
