NWU advancing interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies within social sciences

The North-West University’s Vaal Triangle Campus is joining hands with the Social Sciences Research Society in Turkey to host the 8th International Conference on Social Sciences (ICSS) later this year.

The conference will take place in Durban from 23 – 25 August 2017 and will see delegates from around the world in attendance. ICSS represents a platform for individuals who are interested in all fields of social sciences and as such the conference focuses on disciplines such as economics, entrepreneurship, corporate and public governance, political science and sociology – to name but a few.

By means of the ICSS conference the organisers aim to bring together a wide audience of academics, policy makers and practitioners around clearly defined topics, engage participants in fruitful debate, and facilitate mutual understanding. An additional goal of the conference is to provide a place for members of academia and professionals with interdisciplinary/ multidisciplinary interests related to social sciences to meet and interact with members inside and outside their own particular disciplines.

Full papers which have been through a double-blind peer review process and accepted will be published in one of the following e-journals:

  • International Journal of Social Sciences and Humanity Studies
  • International Journal of Economics and Finance Studies
  • International Journal of Business and Management Studies
  • International Journal of  eBusiness and eGovernment Studies

This year sees Professor Herman van der Merwe – Executive Dean of the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Information Technology, and Prof Babs Surujlal – Director: Research Development, both from the North-West University, serving as Conference Co-Chairpersons. The third Conference Co-Chairperson will be Prof Can Aktan – Chairman: Social Sciences Research Society, Turkey.
