ECSEE2016 Conference Theme: “Justice & Sustainability”

 

Justice and Sustainability is this year’s conference theme for the 2016 IAFOR Social Sciences conferences. 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 looks 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 social scientists 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 ambitious expression of the steadily emerging global network of IAFOR activities. Justice is this year’s conference theme for the 2016 IAFOR Social Sciences conferences, in an ambitious conference program that will be held in four venues (Japan, Dubai, UK, USA) and across three continents, with a combined attendance of more than a thousand 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.

The Land Of Many Palaces IAFOR Documentary Film Award

The Land of Many Places
Best Newcomer Feature IDFA2015

Directed by Adam James Smith & Song Ting
In Ordos, China, thousands of farmers are being relocated into a new city under a government plan to modernize the region. “The Land of Many Palaces” follows a government official whose job is to convince these farmers that their lives will be better off in the city, and a farmer in one of the last remaining villages in the region who is pressured to move. The film explores a process that will take shape on an enormous scale across China, since the central government announced plans to relocate 250 million farmers to cities across the nation over the next 20 years.

 

 

If you are interested in screening The Land of Many Palaces at a conference or workshop, or if you’d like to invite directors to your campus to speak about the film, please contact thelandofmanypalaces@gmail.com.
