Call For Papers


Thematic Approach

The new conference of GIRES, the Global Institute for Research Education & Scholarship based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, wishes to explore world’s most complex and multifaceted enigma. From time, eternal poverty has been one of the most challenging and perplexing problems facing society. The new millennium abounds in examples of extreme poverty; it seems that in the most wealthy and technologically advanced era of mankind, poverty is vigorously growing and becoming ever more mainstream; the acceptability of poverty in society is a controversial issue in twenty-first century. It is race, religion, education, political opinion, nationality and sexual orientation that have traditionally been considered challenging and the root of social problems. However, poverty has been resilient against all social progress; it seems an impossible riddle to solve. 

Our new conference wishes to engage in the philosophical, political and economical debates about the causes and solutions to the problem of poverty. We will explore the ideologies that often dominate the discussion, research the real philosophical and historical assumptions buried beneath the rhetoric so we can start solving this controversial and highly complex global phenomenon.  Why is poverty growing? What are the social policies and the future perspectives in this ever-changing globalized world? 

Our organization, dedicated to interdisciplinarity, invites scholars from various fields including but not limited to philosophy, religion, theology, sociology, anthropology, history, literature, art, economics, geography, cultural and political studies along with representatives from think-tanks and organizations to contribute to the discussion and to debate issues.
