The International Institute of Knowledge Management, Sri Lanka takes pride in inviting you to send in your abstract for the 4th International Conference on Social Sciences (ICOSS 2017) to be held from 21st – 22nd September, 2017 in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

In today’s context, it is evident that the Asian and African domains offer distinctive dynamics, embedded within global imperatives around climate change, sustainable energy development, culturally sensitive poverty alleviation, and a greater voice for women. New transnational discourses within Asia and Africa, often looking eastward rather the westward, animate academics as new vistas of human interaction are made apparent. The Social Sciences have a vital role in scrutinizing and making explicit these processes towards building stronger global sustainability, particularly within these regional domains, and as part of the global south.

Within this frame the main aim in organizing the International Conference on Social Sciences 2017 is to motivate individuals to present their research interests and findings, and to explore opportunities for collaboration and feedback under broader conference themes associated with the Social Sciences.

ICOSS 2017 provides a communication platform for scholars, professionals, academicians, activists and students to share their thoughts and discuss future prospects in the field of Social Science.
