Welcome to ACERP 2014
The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global university partners is proud to announce the Fourth Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy, to be held from March 27-30 2014, at the Rihga Royal Hotel & the adjoining Osaka International Conference Center, Osaka, Japan.

www.acerp.iafor.org

Hear the latest research, publish before a global audience, present in a supportive environment, network, engage in new relationships, experience Japan, explore Osaka and Kyoto, join a global academic community...

This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss outside the traditional confines of narrow fields of specialism, and in new directions of research and discovery in ethics, religion and philosophy. As with IAFOR's other events, and by bringing together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas, ACERP 2014 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
2014 Conference Theme:
"Individual, Community & Society: Conflict, Resolution & Synergy"

Conflict is an integral part of the human condition. The universal struggle between our personal selves – who we are as unique, separate and different from others, with our specific blend of experiences, abilities, attitudes, aspirations, needs and wants – and our social selves, intricately connected to, and interdependent on, others – our loved ones, our friends and favoured groups, our communities and cultures – leads inevitably to internal as well as interpersonal conflict.

Conflict among our communities and societies is also natural, given that these groups are founded on commonality – of geography, values, attitudes, beliefs, aspirations – and differentiated from others based on these. Diversity, however, though it may lead to conflict, plays an important role in the flourishing of communities and societies. One of the challenges of modern society is harnessing the synergy that emerges from the interaction of these differences.

We hope and expect that the conference theme will excite interesting new interpretations and explorations:
We hope you can join us in Osaka in 2014!
