IFCU Social Sciences - International Conference

Dear Friends of the Sectorial Group IFCU-Social Sciences,
In the name of the International Federation of Catholic Universities, I am pleased to announce the next meeting of the Sectorial Group IFCU-Social Sciences will take place from March 14 to 16, 2016, at the Universidade Católica de Pernambuco, in Recife, Brazil. The theme chosen for this encounter is “Positive Social Sciences: Global Citizenship Building”.
This will be the third International Conference of this dynamic Group that already gathered in 2011 at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile to reflect on the theme “Which Social Sciences for Which Society? Towards a New Humanism in Social Sciences at Catholic Universities”, and in 2013 at Christ University, India, around the topic “A New Social Thought for a New Social Model: Looking for Alternatives“. Both these meetings led to the publication of Acts. A guide of all social science activities in Catholic universities was also released as part of the work of this Group.
You will find attached herewith an invitation from the President of the Group, Prof. Fernando Vidal of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas, as well as the call for papers. We will soon send you more detailed information. We very much hope that representatives of your institutions will be able to participate in this important encounter of the catholic universities worldwide network.
Best wishes,
Prof. Msgr. Guy-Réal Thivierge,
IFCU Secretary General.
