"Transforming Society: Trends and Models in Community Leadership and Social Development"

The 19th International Symposium of the International Consortium for Social Development will focus on social change and societal transformation dealing with key international social development issues.​

This theme builds on the previous ICSD conferences emphasising good governance, as well as new and emerging issues in social development requiring attention. At the same time, strong community leadership is needed to tackle the problems of an increasingly polarised and troubled world. Vibrant models of social development for transforming communities will be explored in addressing the pertinent current issues, as well as the challenges and opportunities in the coming decades.

We plan to publish the papers from this symposium along the line of the theme and encourage you to submit your abstracts and papers early to be considered for the publication.

Looking forward to seeing you in Singapore.
