About the Conference

In the postmodern era of today, the personal sphere cannot be separated from the social, the economic, and the political spheres. The micro-setting will be influenced by the macro- circumstances, and what is happening in a distant place might simultaneously and significantly affect other regions and even other parts of the globe. An innovation or otherwise disaster or catastrophe somewhere may also systemically and radically affect other corners of the world in a sudden instance.

Human beings as individuals and groups are exposed, organizations and institutions are affected, the same also happens in the level of regions, states and international relations. Psychological perspectives can be used in comprehending the issues, cultural studies and humanities are relevant, while social and political research, as well as economic and business lenses will also be of significant help. All the different disciplines might also collaboratively blend together in multi/interdisciplinary studies to spawn innovative ideas in addressing complex contemporary issues.
