Second International Conference on
Emerging Research Paradigms in Business and Social Sciences

Tuesday 26th - Thursday 28th November 2013
Venue: To be announced

Middlesex University Dubai takes great pleasure in announcing the Second International Conference on Emerging Research Paradigms in Business and Social Sciences (ERPBSS). The resounding success of the First International Conference on ERPBSS has inspired us to plan our second conference. The first conference, which took place in November 2011, was attended by nearly 200 delegates representing around 100 world-wide academic institutions. To see photos taken during the 2011 conference, please click here.The conference sessions were extremely well-attended and the quality of research presented was exceptionally high. Delegates commented on the natural way in which the conference proactively blended together social science and business-based discussion and argument in rather purposeful manner. It was clear that the conference theme and its design provided a real opportunity for inter-disciplinary dialogue and forms of scholastic communication that transcended disciplinary and subject-specific boundaries.

Subsequently, we have decided to take forward these success factors and are now quite confident that academics across the world will be willing to share their research at the Second ERPBSS conference. It is our belief that events of the last three years will continue to dominate the ‘world of ideas’. The first ERPBSS conference was initially planned at a time when the world was, and in some regions still is, disrupted by the wrenching cataclysm of the Great Recession. The economic depression that has held the world in its grasp has started to loosen its grip. Accordingly, academic discourse and practice could very well re-awaken to a different tune! And, of course, there is no agreement at all on how we might avoid such convulsions, especially as they have social, financial, cultural and psychological repercussions. One of the objectives of the forthcoming conference is to remind the academic world, and the world at large, of ways to proactively address economic and social transformation. Finally, it is our belief that knowledge does not suddenly change or turn dramatically, but slowly emerges and undergoes an incremental process of invention and re-invention - often simultaneously. Therefore, it is in this epistemological context that research paradigms also materialize and become accountable to academic inspection, introspection and deconstruction.
