Ninth International Conference of the Ateneo Center for Asian Studies
*Theme:** Social Justice, Diversity and Development*
24 August 2018 • Ateneo de Manila University
*Background. *In recent decades Asia has seen the rise of new identities
based on shared aspirations and experiences of oppression. Among these are
indigenous peoples, immigrants, refugees, people with disabilities and
groups founded on sexuality and gender-based identities. The social
movements they have spawned have expanded the debate on social justice to
include non-materialist injustices. In the same breath, the conversation
on interventions has broadened to embrace not only redistribution but also
recognition and representation.
Reflecting Ateneo de Manila University’s commitment to social justice, the
Ninth International Conference of the Ateneo Center for Asian Studies takes
the theme “Social Justice, Diversity and Development.” The theme emerges
from contemporary events and issues that necessitate a nuanced
understanding and appreciation of social justice, encompassing varied, even
competing, notions of distributive justice, identity, human rights, social
welfare and political ideology.
*Call for papers. *The conference invites scholars and practitioners to
present papers that expound on the interconnections between social
Justice, identity and diversity in the context of development and social
change in Asia. Papers may explore the following questions:
· Is human rights a Western concept?
· How is social injustice manifested in contemporary Asian societies,
eg graft and corruption, patrimonialism, poverty, gender inequality?
· How do mechanisms of regional institutions such as ASEAN facilitate
or obstruct social justice?
· What is the role of the state in promoting social justice, for
instance, through education, rule of law, human rights, access to social
· How does civil society engage state and non-state actors eg
business, religions, media, in promoting social justice?
Papers on related topics not mentioned in the list are welcome, but are
