The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) in conjunction with its global university partners is proud to announce the Inaugural European Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy, to be held on July 24 – 27, 2014 at the Thistle Hotel Brighton in Brighton, United Kingdom.
“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.
The conference theme is “Individual, Community & Society: Conflict, Resolution & Synergy” and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of disciplines and fields related to Ethics, Religion and Philosophy.
