This editorial is an introduction to the second published volume of the Journal for Social Thought (JST) written by Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Elgie and Deputy Editor Rachelle Miele. We first offer some thoughts on social change as an elusive, and often contentious, goal within sociology, and within academia more broadly. We then present an overview of this special issue "Social Problems, Social Solutions" by outlining the contributions of two papers that seek to demonstrate how theory can be used to understand social problems and work towards social change.
