Three general themes were selected for the conference by the organizing committee in order to highlight major facets in the complexity of social justice,
and provide a contemporary context for an inter-disciplinary dialogue. These themes are not meant to highlight a single focus, but rather to provide
a basis for a panoramic view of social justice in a complex reality. Focal themes that will be identified as emerging from a plurality of submissions will
provide a basis for organizing relevant new sessions thus contributing to an even wider panorama of contemporary views of social justice.
Theme 1: Inter-generational justice, including young-old conflicts, future generations, sustainability and ecology, and the future workplace
Theme 2: Inequality, including legitimation of (in)equality
Theme 3: globalization
(*) Additional themes are expected to emerge from the submitted abstracts.
