Event description

Description

The Annual Conference on Global community intends to bring together scholars from all over the world to share knowledge on the interconnectivity that is bridging nations together. The influences of modern technology through telecommunications have facilitated a transfer of information and data rapidly across the globe. Through this information sharing and connectivity we have witnessed a global social interaction on a monumental scale as cultural boundaries are being eroded and are being redefined. Furthermore, the resources of the world are sparsely and widely distributed. The inherent need to engage through commercial activities have pre-empted a global community to interact with one another based on a set of shared values and traditions. These traditions have enshrined the alignment of nations and leaderships along the same political thoughts and philosophies. Join us to deliberate and discuss fundamental issues that arises from such interactions.

Topics of interests:

1. Technology

2. Culture

3. Economics

4. Politics

Thus as the world goes global what are those fundamental issues that we need to address? As we share information on a daily basis, what risks do we face? What is the precarious nature of modern technology on the private and the public space of a nation? As we interact with other nations, people and races, how do we ensure that we do not lose our own cultures and traditions? How can we effectively ensure the survival and not the demise of our way of life in this global age? As Nations connect together with trade and commercial activities, how can we ensure fair trade? How can we ensure a Balance trade and avoid trade deficits and trade dumping? How does economical actions and engagement with other nations influence policy decision making? Lastly, with a Global community we have witnessed a state of political interdependency, political co-operation, political interference, political manipulation and political conflicts. How can nations manage such phenomenon and level of association without the erosion of the sovereign rights and powers of their nations?
