CALL FOR PAPERS
In recent years humanity has witnessed huge numbers of people forced to leave their homes due to war, conflict, poverty and destruction. We have witnessed the dislocation and displacement of individuals, families and children; the power of governments to shut borders; and people bravely making life threatening journeys across land and sea in search of safety and the possibility of a better future. We have also witnessed private individuals, informal groups and organizations at local, national, and transnational levels, bravely helping and mobilizing for social justice and the well-being of all. How has this happened? Mass communications are all-encompassing, but relations with family and neighbours are minimal. News channels have multiplied, but truth and reliability have diminished and disappeared. Information technology has been developed to an astonishing degree, but psychological problems, social injustices, global crises, and ecological disasters have also increased. As the world grows smaller, the problems grow larger so that they now clearly threaten the future of humanity.

 

Social Science should have brought greater understanding of the human being and its connections. Was it that social sciences were misunderstood or misused? What is the role of cross-cultural connections? Is there a cut of communication both physical and nonphysical levels? What is the role of Social Sciences in the societies?

 

These questions need close study, for only then may the answers be found and human beings live with the dignity they deserve. The 23rd IFSSO General Conference at Warmadewa University in Bali will provide a vital platform for social scientists to interrogate, debate and dialogue on the “connections, social inclution and recognition” as well as build and strengthen a global social sciences that can contextualize, envision and engage in the struggles for a better world that we live in.
