Private Military Companies and Global Civil Society
Ethics, Theory and Practice
Interdisciplinary Conference
14.–16.7.2005 — Durban (South Africa)
While the history of mercenary forces stretches back at least 4000 years, recent events in Africa, Iraq and elsewhere have highlighted the fact that private military forces are now being employed to a degree that is arguably unprecedented in the era since the signing of the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648. Also unique is the degree to which 'Private Military Companies' are demanding recognition as legal and morally legitimate entities. These developments raise important moral, ethical, and policy questions. Despite this, there has been little focused attention on this phenomenon, nor has there been any sustained investigation into the relationship between Global Civil Society and Private Military Companies.

Human Rights in a Globalizing Era?
International Conference
International Conference
Centre for Studies in Social Justice, University of Windsor
4.–6.8.2005 — Windsor, Ont. (Canada)
The worldwide expansion of new social and economic relations, new patterns of migration, and the spread of North American consumer culture have had radically destabilizing effects on the life-conditions of peoples and populations around the world. The conference will consider the diverse ways in which issues of democracy, practices of citizenship, and social security articulate with human rights in this globalizing era. It will bring together internationally known scholars, researchers, and activists whose work addresses the foundations, history, politics, or limitations of human rights and whose participation will assist in redressing the intractable dilemmas associated with the processes of globalization.

Religion out of Place?
Civil Religion, Nationalism and Globaliztion in the 21st Century
International Conference
University of Copenhagen
29.–31.8.2005 — Copenhagen (Denmark)
Traditionally, civil religion and religious nationalism have been linked to specific nation states. Due to the globalization, migration, and intensified demographic mobility of the last decades, various kinds of religion and religiosity have been transferred to new and unusual contexts. This conference seeks a more thorough understanding – theoretically as well as empirically – of the dynamic interrelations of migration, mobility, civil religion and religious nationalism. In short, we would like to find out what takes place, when religions of nations are out of place, and what kind of conflicts that may arise from this displacement.

Transforming Conflict into Collaboration?
2005 Annual Conference
Conflict Research Society
Sheffield Hallam University
31.8.–2.9.2005 — Sheffield (UK)
The ability of conflict to do long-term damage to life, relationships and property is well-documented. This year we are looking, if not exactly for good news stories, at least for examples of situations where the powerful negative energy of conflict has been transformed into something more positive; and for methodologies which may promote this. This may of course involve better understanding of the negative aspects of conflict, and we would not wish the theme to be seen as too restrictive. This 3-day conference is intended as a forum for sharing the outputs of recently completed and ongoing research.

Einreichung von Vorschlägen
Placebo der Wahrheit
Philosophisch-Kulturwissenschaftliches Symposium
Verein philosophische akademie
8.–11.9.2005 — Wien (Österreich)
Die Bedeutung des Wortes "Rationalität" scheint sich schon längst von seinem ganzheitlichen philosophischen Gebrauch gelöst und in den verschiedensten wissenschaftlichen, kulturellen und gesellschaftlichen Kontexten ausdifferenziert zu haben. Die Konzeption der einen Rationalität wird in Frage gestellt und mit einem Pluralismus von Rationalitäten konfrontiert, welcher auch die eine Wahrheit unterläuft.
Wie wird oder wurde mit diesem Problem umgegangen? Soll Wahrheit auf einen jeweils beschränkten Gültigkeitsanspruch reduziert oder gleich als paradoxe Differenz dekonstruiert werden? Welche Akteure, sozial-historischen Strukturen, Herrschaftsapparate oder Ausschlussmechanismen liegen einer sich als neutral ausweisenden Rationalität zu Grunde? Welche Gefahren verbergen sich hinter der einseitigen Dominanz zweckrationalen Denkens? Inwieweit ist Rationalität in Sprache eingegossen und welche Funktion kommt dabei der Sprache selbst zu? Wie manifestiert und determiniert Rationalität die soziale Praxis und in wie ist eine Emanzipation aus "rational" gefestigten Strukturen möglich? Wie ließe sich andererseits das Verhältnis von Rationalität und Religion, Kunst, Alltagssprache, Mythos oder Emotionen begreifen?

Universidad de Sevilla
Universidad Pablo de Olavide
20.–24.9.2005 — Sevilla (España)
En este nuevo milenio, el cambio y la heterogeneidad juegan un papel crucial en el desarrollo de los individuos y las sociedades. Es el nuestro un mundo que se caracteriza por continuos cambios y transformaciones, así como por la coexistencia de »múltiples« sujetos y »múltiples« culturas que generan diferentes procesos de identificación y que, a su vez, producen nuevas formas de identidad en torno a nuevos ideales. Se podría hablar así de una especie de nuevo orden mundial que se mueve en la tensión entre la homogeneización y la heterogeneidad; la globalización y la particularización, tanto en lo social, lo político, lo ideológico, lo económico, como en nuestras vidas cotidianas. Un objetivo clave de la investigación sociocultural es analizar los instrumentos mediacionales que surgen y se desarrollan en las actividades (inter)culturales, prestando especial atención a los que surgen en las nuevas formas de comunicación (ligadas a las tecnologías de la información y de la comunicación). Por todo ello, el principal foco de interés de este congreso, en un sentido amplio, será el sujeto actuante.

The conference will examine the interrelationship between security and development and its implications for development co-operation, and will stimulate the debate between the security and the development communities in Europe and worldwide on the challenges of the future. The concept of human security ensures that the conference will focus both on the narrow aspect of violent threats to the integrity of states through international terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, and on the wider range of threats to people's lives and integrity, such as natural disasters, environmental degradation, epidemics and increasing poverty.
