Rethinking Development through Social Justice and Humanity
Kupang, December 3-5, 2019
Social justice is a fundamental issue and has become one of Indonesia’s biggest challenges today. The challenge is to accelerate development and economic growth while considering social justice and principles of humanity. Without these principles, social justice is considered only in the negative view, since development projects are often conducted by excluding those who live in this vast archipelago, placing them as outsiders. Consequently, the meaning of social justice itself has become unclear. Ensuring that development is in line with principles of humanity is one way to protect the community, so that development does not become a process of conquest.
In order to explore the issue, we cordially invite all researchers, lecturer, students, and community activists to share their studies and experiences in Annual Conference on Social Justice (ACSJ) 2019. We call for abstracts which discuss the main theme of the conference, and should be related with, but not limited to, the agendas of the Sustainable Development Goals as the following:
- Poverty reduction
- Good health and well-being
- Good quality and inclusive education
- Sanitation and water management
- Economic growth and labor rights protection
- Gender and equality
- Climate change and environment
- Peace and justice
- Democracy and governance
Abstracts should be written in English and Bahasa Indonesia, no longer than 500 words, and follow the IMRAD (Introduction, Method, Result and Discussion) format. The abstract should be submitted to the committee via firstname.lastname@example.org no late than October 30th, 2019. Conference registration fee is free, but not included the accommodation and transportation cost. For further inquiries, feel free to contact our contact persons: Gisela (+6281337409909) or Randy (+6281338719462).
