AASSREC Association of Asian Social Science Research Councils
 

23rd Biennial General Conference

September 2019 – Hanoi, Vietnam

In the Anthropocene, human activities are recognized to have a significant global impact on the Earth's geology and ecosystems. This in turn requires inclusive and coordinated actions to ensure equality and security for human beings. Equality is a basic human right and is built on recognition of diverse values. Security includes not just military and political security but environmental, resource and livelihood security. Social sciences and humanities have a vital role to play in clarifying and developing principles, norms, rules and institutions to undertake actions, and in participating in the dialogue among citizens and policy makers to achieve such a sense and transdisciplinary research to contribute to transformations to the sustainable world.
