World Social Science Forum 2018

EVENT: Security and Equality for Sustainable Futures

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

To register for the conference visit the conference website. Early bird registration is open until 30 June.
