ECSS 2014 - The European Conference on the Social Sciences

ECSS 2014 - The European Conference on the Social Sciences
3rd to 6th July 2014
Brighton, United Kingdom
Abstract Submission Deadline Extended: May 15

2014 Conference Theme: "Individual, Community and Society: Conflict, Resolution and Synergy"

Web address:
Sponsored by: IAFOR - The International Academic Forum

The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global university partners is proud to announce the Second European Conference on the Social Sciences, to be held from July 3-6, 2014, at the Thistle Hotel Brighton, in the United Kingdom.

Hear the latest research, publish before a global audience, present in a supportive environment, network, engage in new relationships, experience the UK, explore Brighton, London and the South-East of England, join a global academic community...

Building on the success of last year's event, the Second European Conference on the Social Sciences will build on the conversations and partnerships that have developed since last year, as we again encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in an international academic forum.

This year's conference will include a variety of presenters representing a wide range of social science disciplines, expressing divergent views, searching for common ground, and creating the synergies that can inspire multi-disciplinary collaborations. In developing these relationships among ourselves, the role of the social sciences is strengthened as we take our place at the table, along with scholars in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), in seeking solutions to the complex issues and problems of the 21st century. I sincerely hope that we will use this time together, not just for intellectual discovery and discourse, but to establish a common vision and to motivate each other to do our part in the creation of a sustainable world.

2014 Conference Theme: "Individual, Community and Society: Conflict, Resolution and Synergy"

Conflict is an integral part of the human condition. The universal struggle between our personal selves - who we are as unique, separate and different from others, with our specific blend of experiences, abilities, attitudes, aspirations, needs and wants â �and our social selves, intricately connected to, and interdependent on, others â �our loved ones, our friends and favoured groups, our communities and cultures â �leads inevitably to internal as well as interpersonal conflict.

Conflict among our communities and societies is also natural, given that these groups are founded on commonality â �of geography, values, attitudes, beliefs, aspirations â �and differentiated from others based on these. Diversity, however, though it may lead to conflict, plays an important role in the flourishing of communities and societies. One of the challenges of modern society is harnessing the synergy that emerges from the interaction of these differences.

We look forward to seeing you at ECSS2014!
