International conference: Challenges of Contemporary Society, Skopje, 12–13 November 2015
On the occasion of marking the 50th anniversary of the Institute for Sociological, Political and Juridical Research of Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, we are pleased to publish a call for papers for an International conference entitled Challenges of Contemporary Society. The conference will take place on 12–13 November 2015 in Skopje, Macedonia.
The many recent changes that have followed the global financial and political crisis have brought to the surface a number of growing challenges for contemporary society. These changes have challenged the capitalist system and the ways in which national and global economies are managed. They have provoked new forms of citizen self-organization beyond established forms of political representation, including the increased participation of youth. They have also afforded space for more radical demands on the part of populist leaders and movements in both old and new democracies. And they have shaken the European project as well as the global political order. What are the future prospects of these global developments? Will they entail greater insecurity or will they provide new opportunities for the advancement of society and human well-being?
