2016 Conference Theme: “Justice and Sustainability”
Justice and Sustainability is this year’s conference theme for the 2016 Conferences on Sustainability, Energy & the Environment. Justice can be used as a working tool within a framework for social science research. It can be the basis of an investigation into and the complex interplay of systems of law, education, business and public policy that comprise the context of social life.
This theme invites us to look at concepts and forms Justice can take, and the contested spaces around these terms, particularly the issues of sustainability, the environment, domestic and international law, equity, along with access to water, food, healthcare and education.
This international and interdisciplinary conference calls for professors, researchers, policy makers and professionals from around the globe to come together to share their respective outlooks and collective wisdoms in the pursuit of a sustainable world. The speakers will be expressing divergent views, searching for common ground, and looking for the synergies that can inspire multidisciplinary research collaborations, as we work together to address complex problems, establish common visions, and motivate communities and societies to embody the ideal of justice in their activities.
The conferences are an expression of the steadily emerging global network of IAFOR activities. Justice is this year’s conference theme for the 2016 IAFOR Sustainability, Energy & the Environment conferences, in a conference program that will be held in Japan & the UK, with a combined attendance of more than a 600 delegates from over 50 countries, and dozens more cultures.
We hope and expect the 2016 conference themes to inspire a number of research avenues, and look forward to discussing ideas, findings and synergies, in this International Academic Forum.
We hope to see you at ACSEE2016!
