CONFERENCE THEMES

This conference maintains two main streams.

Papers in the first stream will discuss adequate delineation of the domain

topics, practical relevance, etc.

Papers in the second stream will cover a particular topic or issue in the
context of globalization. Possible topics or issues are: migration,
