CALL FOR SESSION PROPOSALS: Security and Equality for Sustainable Futures: Deadline 30 September 2017

25-28 September 2018 | Fukuoka, Japan

Life in the Anthropocene requires inclusive and coordinated actions to ensure equality and security for human beings. Going beyond 'security' in the military or political context, human security also requires environmental, resource and livelihood security. Security and Equality are prerequisites for stability and sustainability.

The social sciences and humanities have a vital role to play in clarifying and developing principles, norms, rules and institutions to undertake action towards such an understanding of security, and in participating in the dialogue among citizens and policy makers.

The Forum seeks to create a platform for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research around the following sub-themes:

  • Sustainability and security
  • Cybersecurity
  • Human Security
  • Security and the 2030 Agenda
  • Globalization, diversity, and cultures of belonging
  • Development and inclusion in urban and rural areas
  • Gender equality and security
  • Health, safety and biosecurity
  • Freedom, Democracy and Security

Session Proposal Submission Deadline: 30 September 2017 (submit online on the Forum website)

Proposals will be reviewed by the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) and notifications provided by 30 November 2017.
