The World Social Science Forum 2018 in Fukuoka, JapanConferences 08.08.2017
The World Social Science Forum 2018 is dedicated to security, currently one of the most pressing concerns of societies worldwide. Over the course of four days, the participants will look into various dimensions of security, interrogating how the demand for security relates to societies’ quest for equality and sustainability. Presenters will look into approaches, trends, and responses from different sectors. The WSS Forum2018 will allow identifying critical research priorities on security, as well as data and knowledge gaps, globally and in specific regions.
The series of World Social Science Forum is one of ISSC’s flagship activities. The WSS Forum gather researchers, funders, policymakers and other stakeholders from all over the world to discuss important societal challenges, take stock of social science contributions and capacities, and make recommendations for future research, practice and policy. The three Forum held in the past nine years have achieved great success, making this series highly prestigious and influential.
■The 4th World Social Science Forum will be hosted by Kyushu University in Japan. It is the first time an Asian institution has hosted the Forum. Since it was established as the fourth imperial university in 1911, Kyushu University has, among all major Japanese research universities, had strong ties with Korea, China and the rest of East Asia. This came naturally to Kyushu University, which is located western Japan in Fukuoka, a major trading hub for the region since the 7th century. Hosting the first World Social Science Forum in Asia will reaffirm the role of Kyushu University as an academic and socio-economic hub that integrates Asian countries into the 21st Century. The theme of WSSF2018 is Security and Equality for Sustainable Futures. A wide range of sub-themes will allow encompassing discussions and expose attendees to a variety of research fields, methods, and applications. Proposals for parallel sessions under the listed sub-themes of WSSF2018 are now invited.
