Allameh Tabataba'i University to Hold 1st Int’l Conference on 'Social Policy in the Islamic World'

Saturday, May 12, 2018 - 10:51

The first international conference on 'Social Policy in the Islamic World' will be held at Allameh Tabataba'i University (the largest public university specialized in humanities and social sciences in Iran) in May 12-13, 2018.

According to an ISCA report, the first international conference on 'Social Policy in the Islamic World' represents a timely response by the academic community.

One of the most outstanding features of Islamic social teachings revolves around social welfare concepts, principles, as well as strategies and solutions. However, it is not possible to portray a single picture of social policy in Muslim societies given the vast diversity of historical, political, and economic circumstances they have experienced as well as various cultural characteristics they possess.

Despite these diversities they have to respond to more or less similar issues and problems with regard to family and gender, inequality and poverty, education, employment and health, housing and social care, as well as juvenile delinquency and criminal justice, etc.

Hence, there is an important question on how do they deal with these issues and what is the status and role of Islamic teachings in such social policies. This international conference is aimed to address these broad questions and therefore welcomes papers dealing with a wide range of issues outlined in the conference themes.
