Social sciences and humanities: a New Agenda for Europe's Challenges (SSH2016)

Social sciences and humanities: a New Agenda for Europe's Challenges  (SSH2016)

Date:   15th - 16th November 2016

Venue: Hotel Saffron, Bratislava

Aim: The aim of the conference is to illustrate that the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) bring an unmatched contribution to the workings of democratic societies.

In a fast changing world, no problem can be analysed and no democratic and efficient solution can be found without cutting-edge thinking and research in SSH. The EU is currently facing a number of crises such as migration with its consequences on national politics, human rights and freedom of movement; growing extremism and radicalisation, which sparks debates on religious diversity and security inside and outside Europe; and unemployment which fuels social exclusion in some of its Member States.

The target audience will include about 300 people, a good mixture of stakeholders including individual researchers and representatives from universities, research institutes, associations and societies; policy-makers, business representatives, non-governmental organizations, civil society groups, and media. They will act as multipliers for the conference’s objectives and the conference will serve as a consolidation space for such a discourse.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
