Conference on Social Responsibility in Challenging Times (Tartu, 7-8 October 2021)

The Social Sciences, Economics and Law (SSEL) Cluster Conference on "Social Responsibility in Challenging Times" will be held from 7 to 8 October 2021 at the University of Tartu. The conference aims to bring together researchers and PhD students from the ENLIGHT partners (Basque Country, Bordeaux, Comenius Bratislava, Galway, Ghent, Göttingen, Groningen, Tartu, and Uppsala).

With some of Europe's leading social scientists as speakers, as well as contributions from a wide array of disciplines and practices, the SSEL conference will showcase advanced research and explore the uses of social sciences in the turbulent times. The conference theme offers an opportunity to discuss various aspects of politics, democracy, as well as education, migration, and well-being.

By opening panel discussions on topics such as governance in the digital era, the welfare state, childhood vulnerability, gender, personality, productivity, residential segregation and the replication crisis, the conference seeks to encourage the discussion on the role of social sciences in society.

Researchers and PhD students from the ENLIGHT universities are welcome to submit posters to the SSEL 2021 Poster Session (Submission deadline: 25 August 2021). The poster session offers the presenters an opportunity to share their work through one-on-one discussions next to the poster.
