Call for Papers
The 2013 Thirteenth International Diversity in Organizations, Communities and Nations Conference is held at the Charles Darwin University,
Darwin, Australia on
26-28 June 2013.
This Conference has a history of bringing together scholarly, government and practice-based participants with an interest in the issues of diversity and community. The Conference examines the concept of diversity as a positive aspect of a global world and globalized society. Diversity is in many ways reflective of our present world order, but there are ways of taking this further without necessary engendering its alternatives: racism, conflict, discrimination and inequity. Diversity as a mode of social existence can be projected in ways that deepen the range of human experience. The Conference will seek to explore the full range of what diversity means and explore modes of diversity in real-life situations of living together in community. The Conference supports a move away from simple affirmations that ‘diversity is good’ to a much more nuanced account of the effects and uses of diversity on differently situated communities in the context of our current epoch of globalization.

Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, roundtables or colloquia are invited, addressing diversity through one of the following themes:
• Identity and Belonging
• Education and Learning in a World of Differences
• Organizational Diversity
• Community Diversity and Governance

The final deadline for proposal submission is 2 May 2013. Please visit for more information on submitting your proposal, future deadlines, and registering for the conference.

Presenters will have the option to submit their completed papers to the refereed International Journal of Diversity in Organizations, Communities, and Nations or its related themed journals. Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposals for virtual presentations may be submitted at any time, up to the start of the conference.
