Call for Papers : International Hybrid Conference on Emerging Research in Development, Sustainability, and Human Rights

The international virtual conference on emerging research in politics, development, and human rights aims to provide a platform for graduate students, researchers and others to contribute present and discuss research responding to emerging critical issues in Asia and Beyond.  The world faces severe political, environmental, technological, and social problems which are worsening. In many sectors, such as politics, development, and rights, research is critical to better understand these problems and how to respond to them.

The region faces increasing vulnerabilities such as exacerbated social and economic problems, democratic backsliding, increasing militarization, increase in conflicts, the threats posed by new technologies such as AI, heightening inequalities, and the rise of authoritarianism and populism. Marginalized groups in particular face increased vulnerabilities.
