2nd European Conference on the Social Sciences (ECSS) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR) in con­junc­tion with its global uni­ver­sity part­ners is proud to announce the Sec­ond Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on the Social Sci­ences 2014, to be held from July 3 – 6, 2014, at the This­tle Hotel Brighton, in Brighton, United King­dom.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    Build­ing on the suc­cess of last year’s event, the Sec­ond Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on the Social Sci­ences will build on the con­ver­sa­tions and part­ner­ships that have devel­oped since last year, as we again encour­age aca­d­e­mics and schol­ars to meet and exchange ideas and views in an inter­na­tional aca­d­e­mic forum.

    This year’s con­fer­ence will include a vari­ety of pre­sen­ters rep­re­sent­ing a wide range of social sci­ence dis­ci­plines, express­ing diver­gent views, search­ing for com­mon ground, and cre­at­ing the syn­er­gies that can inspire multi-​disciplinary col­lab­o­ra­tions. In devel­op­ing these rela­tion­ships among our­selves, the role of the social sci­ences is strength­ened as we take our place at the table, along with schol­ars in the STEM dis­ci­plines (sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing, and math­e­mat­ics), in seek­ing solu­tions to the com­plex issues and prob­lems of the 21st century.

    2014 Con­fer­ence Theme: “Indi­vid­ual, Com­mu­nity & Soci­ety: Con­flict, Res­o­lu­tion & Synergy”

    Con­flict is an inte­gral part of the human con­di­tion. The uni­ver­sal strug­gle between our per­sonal selves – who we are as unique, sep­a­rate and dif­fer­ent from oth­ers, with our spe­cific blend of expe­ri­ences, abil­i­ties, atti­tudes, aspi­ra­tions, needs and wants – and our social selves, intri­cately con­nected to, and inter­de­pen­dent on, oth­ers – our loved ones, our friends and favoured groups, our com­mu­ni­ties and cul­tures – leads inevitably to inter­nal as well as inter­per­sonal conflict.

    Con­flict among our com­mu­ni­ties and soci­eties is also nat­ural, given that these groups are founded on com­mon­al­ity – of geog­ra­phy, val­ues, atti­tudes, beliefs, aspi­ra­tions – and dif­fer­en­ti­ated from oth­ers based on these. Diver­sity, how­ever, though it may lead to con­flict, plays an impor­tant role in the flour­ish­ing of com­mu­ni­ties and soci­eties. One of the chal­lenges of mod­ern soci­ety is har­ness­ing the syn­ergy that emerges from the inter­ac­tion of these differences.

    Inter­na­tional, Inter­cul­tural, Interdisciplinary

    The Euro­pean Con­fer­ence on the Social Sci­ences is orga­nized as part of a month long series of aca­d­e­mic events in the UK orga­nized by IAFOR. Those attend­ing the ECSS will have the oppor­tu­nity of attend­ing sev­eral other con­fer­ences held in par­al­lel for no extra charge:
