Meeting Description:

The 2013 Conference on Human Development in Asia invites scholarly interactions among academics, researchers, doctoral students, and representatives from industry, entrepreneurs, and non-profit and non-governmental organization professionals.

The conference theme of Change, Continuity and Diversity: Perspectives on Sustainability for Asia seeks to explore such issues and their links to the notion of sustainability through the combined and holistic lenses of an interdisciplinary approach. This conference will be held in Hiroshima, Japan, during the 68th Hiroshima Peace Memorial.

Remembrance events and tours are held during the conference, including a guided tour of Peace Park on August 6, which is the anniversary of the atomic bombing.

COHDA is also organizing a special trip on August 9 to Miyajima Shrine Island - a UNESCO World Heritage site, and a must-see for any visitors to Japan.

Call for Papers:

Authors are welcome to submit from a range of topics, perspectives, and disciplines. The range of research submissions may include conceptual, empirical, experimental, and case studies.

While taking account the wider themes of Change, Continuity and Diversity, the sub-themes of the conference will focus on the following nine areas:

Population and Ageing
Healthcare and Social Support
Politics and Conflict
Inequality and Justice
Gender and Culture
Migration and Identity
Environment and Technology
