TIIKM 4th International Conference on Social Sciences (ICOSS) 2017 Colombo

  • Conference Call
  • Wel­come to the 4th Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Social Sci­ences (ICOSS 2017) orga­nized by The Inter­na­tional Insti­tute of Knowl­edge Man­age­ment which will be held on Sep­tem­ber 2122, 2017 in Colombo, Sri Lanka at the Taj Samu­dra Hotel under the theme “Social Sci­ences: Towards a Sus­tain­able and Prospec­tive Future”.

    The ICOSS con­fer­ence has become a pre­mier con­fer­ence among pro­fes­sion­als, aca­d­e­mi­cians, schol­ars, researchers and activists in cre­at­ing a plat­form to dis­cuss and dis­sem­i­nate mean­ing­ful mes­sages, val­ues and prac­tices in the sub­ject of social sciences.

    In today’s con­text, it is evi­dent that the Asian and African domains offer dis­tinc­tive dynam­ics, embed­ded within global imper­a­tives around cli­mate change, sus­tain­able energy devel­op­ment, cul­tur­ally sen­si­tive poverty alle­vi­a­tion, and a greater voice for women. New transna­tional dis­courses within Asia and Africa, often look­ing east­ward rather the west­ward, ani­mate aca­d­e­mics as new vis­tas of human inter­ac­tion are made appar­ent. The Social Sci­ences have a vital role in scru­ti­niz­ing and mak­ing explicit these processes towards build­ing stronger global sus­tain­abil­ity, par­tic­u­larly within these regional domains, and as part of the global south.
