7th International Interdisciplinary Scientific Conference Society. Health. Welfare

10 October 2018 - 12 October 2018

Rīga Stradins University is proud to announce that the 7th International Interdisciplinary Scientific Conference SOCIETY HEALTH WELFARE 2018 will be held on 10th-12th October, 2018 in Riga. The conference is dedicated to urban and rural studies from different perspectives under the title “Contemporary Social Dynamics and Welfare: Urban and Rural Development Perspectives.”

“Society. Health. Welfare” has become a recognised International Conference which brings together researchers and specialists of various fields: sociology, public relations and communication, health and rehabilitation, pedagogy and psychology, social welfare and social work, economics, law and political science.

Cities and countryside are traditionally associated not only with differences in lifestyles but also with differences in opportunities, highlighting the gap between centres and peripheries.

From a rural perspective, practical issues such as access to health, education, humanitarian services, employment, as well demographic processes, leisure and culture, etc. are still relevant.

The opportunities of the contemporary modern society make it possible to experience the rhythm of the globalized world and build links and contacts that today contribute to the gradual convergence of contrast between the cities and the countryside.

We invite to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations on research in the following areas:

  • Political and Economic Determinants of Urban-Rural Development
  • Urban-Rural Linkages and Implications for Lifestyle and Socio Cultural Development
  • Community-Based Health Care and Health Promotion
  • Potential of Human and Social Capital in Urban-Rural Development
  • Urban / Rural Linkages and Impact on Community Safety
  • Social Enterprise as Potential for Development of Social Services and Community Welfare
