14th Slovenian Social Science Conference - 3nd thematic panel of Sustain4EU

School of Advanced Social Studies co-organised the 14th Slovenian Social Science Conference. It took place between 17 and 18th of June 2022.The title of hje conference was “Back to history? Coping with re-emerging social challenges for humanity”. The main aim was to question question what can we as a humanity learn from the previous experiences that humanity all over the globe went through, in order to recognise the advantages and limitations in coping with reoccurring historical trends. Despite the current challenges to globalisation, the humanity is still more connected and interdependent than ever before. In addition, turning the social and political attention to more recent crises such as covid-19 and the Russian aggression have not made the other problems, such as the issues of social and environmental sustainability disappear – but only made them even worse. The situation thus challenges the social scientists and experts dealing with social transformations to search for new answers.

 

Jean Monnet Module Sustain4EU hosted the thematic session “Social science research methods for understanding and providing sustainable development in the EU context”. The key note speech opening the panel referred to the social Entrepreneurship and integration of migrants in the EU context. Within the session of paper presentation, the Module leader dr. Tea Golob represented a research on measuring reflexivity and connecting the concept to sustainable development. This study was carried out within a research project Sustainable Action (ARRS J5-1788) founded by Slovenian research Agency. The implementation of this  research is in synergy with the Module research orientations and applied in pedagogical activities.
