Come to the inaugural ECPEL 2014, to engage in challenging interdisciplinary discussion centering on the latest ideas and research finding in Politics, Economics and Law. This year's conference sessions will be wide-ranging, covering both policy and research. They will bring together experts and leaders from the academic and business world to address key contemporary issues in these social sciences, by both reflecting on the recent past, and looking forward; to exchange ideas, and share research findings in the exciting environment of an IAFOR conference.

This year's theme invites scholars from their different research backgrounds and from a variety of disciplinary approaches, to look at the conference theme of conflict and resolution in the relations and interplay between individuals, communities, and societies, as in an unstable world we look to work together in the creation of a sustainable future.

We look forward to seeing you at ECPEL2014!
