Fourth World Social Science Forum
The series of World Social Science Forum is one of ISSC’s flagship activities. The WSS Forum gather researchers, funders, policymakers and other stakeholders from all over the world to discuss important societal challenges, take stock of social science contributions and capacities, and make recommendations for future research, practice and policy. The three Forum held in the past nine years have achieved great success, making this series highly prestigious and influential.
The World Social Science Forum2018 is dedicated to security, currently one of the most pressing concerns of societies worldwide. Over the course of four days, the participants will look into various dimensions of security, interrogating how the demand for security relates to societies’ quest for equality and sustainability. Presenters will look into approaches, trends, and responses from different sectors. The WSS Forum2018 will allow identifying critical research priorities on security, as well as data and knowledge gaps, globally and in specific regions
