2017 AASP Conference theme
The theme of the 2017 AASP Conference in Auckland, New Zealand, August 26-28 is “Making a Difference with Social Science: Teaching and Research that Addresses Social Issues and Cultivates Self Refinement”.
Building from dialogues opened up by AASP’s Special Issues on Action-oriented and Applied Social Psychology in the Journal of Pacific Rim Psychology, AASP President Allan Bernardo and Past-President James Liu aim to provide a conference that promotes social science for social good, and enables teachers and researchers to build collaborative relationships across disciplines and topics that enhance lifelong learning.
Scholars steeped in Asian and other philosophical traditions are invited to join in a spirited dialogue envisioning how social scientists can help co-create global futures in collaboration with communities, governing bodies, global institutions, and non-government/non-profit agencies.
