Rit Vimarsh Third International Conference on Violence and Humanity

Date: October 14-17, 2016

Location: India International Center, New Delhi, India

Violence is one of the biggest dilemmas for humanity. It is perceived as a problem as well as the solution to the almost all the problems that have been faced in the history of humanity. With the development of technology humankind has become increasingly capable of inflicting violence. Today, traditional wars are curtailed, but unconventional types of conflicts are increasing. Terrorism is becoming a standard procedure of resistance and offence. In the field of social sciences, violence is probably the most discussed issue, but mostly this discussion is done in a categorized form. Lots of research and discussions are taking place in the field of domestic violence, crime, violence against children, terrorism related violence etc., but a comprehensive approach still seems to be lacking. Rit Vimarsh is pleased to announce the Third International Rit Vimarsh Conference on Violence and Humanity.

Second International Conference on Multidisciplinary Research 2017

Date: January 7-8, 2017

Location: Colombo, Sri Lanka

In today’s knowledge landscape there are powerful drivers for multidisciplinary research.  Through simple collaboration, researchers from different disciplines can accomplish more by teaming.  Interdisciplinary research moves beyond simple collaboration and teaming to integrate data, methodologies, perspectives, and concepts from multiple disciplines in order to advance fundamental understanding or to solve real world problems.  Interdisciplinary research requires either that an individual researcher gains a depth of understanding two or more than one discipline and be fluent in their languages and methodologies, or more frequently that multidisciplinary teams assemble and create a common language and framework for discovery and innovation.

International Conference on Political Transition, Non-Violence and Communication in Conflict Transformation

Date: January 24-26, 2017

Location: Pattani, Thailand

Unfortunately, progress in Asian conflict resolution is overshadowed  by  a  multiplicity  of  ongoing violent  conflicts elsewhere in the world, in places such as in  Syria,  Iraq,  Yemen,  Libya. The  global threat  of radicalised religious movements, the retreat of democratic governance in several regions of the world,  and the  humanitarian catastrophe of refugees driven from their homes represent serious challenges to human, national and international security. What links these developments is the urgent need to find political and non-­violent means of engaging with fundamental, protracted  violent conflicts. A key element is to find effective ways to communicate in and on conflicts and their transformation. It is crucial to explore, develop and nurture effective ways to engage with and the help transform violent political conflicts.

Understanding Change in World Politics: ISA’s 58th Annual Convention

Date: February 22-25, 2017

Location: Baltimore, Maryland

Much of international relations theory is poorly equipped to understand change. Standard realist theories have little to say about peaceful change, although liberalism proposes several strategies for change and constructivism has focused on ideational change. Yet, we still lack a proper understanding of when and how change happens and how states and international institutions can adapt to transforming world politics peacefully.

The 2017 conference is aimed at taking an assessment of our understanding of change, its different manifestations as well as implications. Theoretical and policy relevant papers and panels can be presented on any key aspect as it pertains to the conference research theme

International Conference on Globalization, Culture and Identity

Date: February 25-26, 2017

At this juncture, it is useful to pause and explore critical questions and concerns confronting our society. Do opportunities opened up by globalization help individuals and communities break out of the rigid structures of caste and religion? What are the multiple ways in which media helps individuals question new expressions of caste, class and patriarchy? In a globalized world, increasingly marked also by new fundamentalisms, how do individuals and groups articulate their ideas about poverty, equality, justice and development?

Panels will focus on Migration and Diaspora, Youth and Identity, Caste and Religion, Organizations and Identity, and Development and Displacement.

The 10th Global Studies Conference

Date: June 8-9, 2017

Location: Singapore

The conference seeks to examine the different types of mobilities that constitute contemporary forms of globalization, which are often understood as sets of processes that generally reduce the costs and obstacles to movements across borders. These movements include money and capital, migrants and labor, ideas and norms, practices and policies of government, resistance and terrorism, technology transfers and data flows, and environmental factors such as pollution and disease. Each one of these concepts and processes is governed by a different logic of mobility both causally and normatively, which suggests that there is no single correct frame for studying all of them. As such, the conference also proposes to investigate the theory and practice of global studies, examining its status as an emerging field, its relationship to the study of global justice, and its connections with activism.
