Social transformation and the digital age

WORLD SOCIAL SCIENCE FORUM (WSSF) 2013: In line with ISSC’s strategic objectives to ensure synergies and continuity across its activities, WSSF 2013 will draw on the theme of WSSF 2009 "One planet, worlds apart" and the "Knowledge divides" highlighted in the 2010 WSSR report.

13-15 October 2013 | Montréal, Canada

WSSF 2013 will explore the evolving digital world, its opportunities, challenges and impacts on society, industry, individuals and the environment. The planned format of the Forum will illustrate and complement these themes, offering innovative and inclusive-beyond-the-venue linkages. The continuity principle will also link the 2013 Forum forward to the Forum in 2015 which will take place in South Africa and focus on themes of global justice.

WSSF 2013 is organised in partnership with a Canadian consortium led by the Montreal secretariat of the International Political Science Association (IPSA), the Forum has received the formal support of the Canadian Prime Minister, the Quebec Prime Minister and two Québécois Ministries, the Mayor of Montréal Tourism, IPSA, major Montréal-based universities, and others.

Next steps will include the setting up of the 2013 Forum organising committee and programme committee.
