Slovenian National Committee of the UNESCO Management of Social Transformations Program (MOST), and School of Advanced Social Studies, Nova Gorica, Slovenia in cooperation with Slovenian Social Science Association and ISA Junior Sociologists Network organised this year’s 11th Slovenian Social Science Conference „ Observing social transformations: National and Transnational perspectives”. It was held form May the 30 till 1st of June 2019 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The conference was primarily but not exclusively focused on:
- economic perspectives: explaining contemporary capitalist markets, their social and technological contexts, as well as social and environmental consequences – from the local to the global level; observing the persistence or re-emergence of (national) protectionism confronted with the ideas of free flows of labour, capital, goods and services; what are the opportunities and threats of these concepts and how they are related to each other;
- cultural perspectives: observing the complex relations between nationalism and cosmopolitanism, between the ideas of cultural universalism and cultural relativism, understanding and managing intercultural relations, clashes and solidarities, observing the varieties of imagined communities and the perspectives that see the world as divided into civilisations and the traps related to such views;
- political perspectives: the challenges for liberal democracy when confronted both with globalising and fragmentising trends, its links both to the nation state and to cosmopolitanism, evaluating local, national and transnational governance, new perspectives on borders and migrations, protecting human rights and free speech in the era of “political correctness”, “fake news” and “hate speech”.
