Following a global financial crisis and numerous political challenges, 2011 appears to offer us new opportunities for engaging in debates and research work. Bridging economic, political, and social challenges this period continues to be a problematic reality check for theoretical and empirical perspectives. Are the current events ahead of scholars’ conceptualizations, politicians’ capabilities, and policy-makers’ solutions? With many challenges ahead, we hope to generate interdisciplinary academic debates that tackle relevant topics in their fields of research. Through this year’s conference we hope to provide an interdisciplinary space which will enable different perspectives and approaches to come together in order to provide explanations and understandings of contemporary processes.
