4th Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy (ACERP) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter­na­tional Aca­d­e­mic Forum (IAFOR) in con­junc­tion with its global uni­ver­sity part­ners is proud to announce the Fourth Asian Con­fer­ence on Ethics, Reli­gion and Phi­los­o­phy 2014, to be held from March 27 – 30 2014, at the Rihga Royal Hotel & the adjoin­ing Osaka Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­ter, Osaka, Japan.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    “Indi­vid­ual, Com­mu­nity & Soci­ety: Con­flict, Res­o­lu­tion & Syn­ergy“

    This inter­na­tional and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary con­fer­ence will again bring together a range of aca­d­e­mics and prac­ti­tion­ers to dis­cuss out­side the tra­di­tional con­fines of nar­row fields of spe­cial­ism, and in new direc­tions of research and dis­cov­ery in ethics, reli­gion and phi­los­o­phy. As with IAFOR’s other events, and by bring­ing together a num­ber of uni­ver­sity schol­ars work­ing through­out Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ACERP 2014 will afford the oppor­tu­nity for renew­ing old acquain­tances, mak­ing new con­tacts, and net­work­ing across higher edu­ca­tion and beyond.

    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.

    Sis­ter Con­fer­ence ACP2014

    The Asian Con­fer­ence on Ethics, Reli­gion and Phi­los­o­phy 2014 will again be held along­side the Asian Con­fer­ence on Psy­chol­ogy and the Behav­ioral Sci­ences. Reg­is­tra­tion for either con­fer­ence will allow atten­dees the option of attend­ing ses­sions in the other.

    Pub­lish­ing Opportunities

    uthors of accepted abstracts will have the oppor­tu­nity of pub­lish­ing their asso­ci­ated paper in the offi­cial con­fer­ence pro­ceed­ings, and a selec­tion of papers will be con­sid­ered for inclu­sion in the IAFOR Jour­nal of Ethics, Reli­gion and Phi­los­o­phy. The Jour­nal is edited by Dr Michael O’Sullivan of the Chi­nese Uni­ver­sity of Hong Kong.
