The Future of the Left and Social Democracy in Europe
Stream Leader: Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER.
The social democracy and the other parties of the left were the most important supporters of what is called the European social model. The World and European Developments seem to have undermined the legitimacy of social democracy in Europe. The question is whether this is transitory phase or a permanent decay of the traditional left parties of Europe. Academics and researchers from all areas of social sciences (politics, sociology, economics etc) are more than welcome to contribute to this small symposium.

Questions of Contemporary Critical Theory: Resistance & Rebellion in the Dark Times
Panel Organizers: Dr. John Holloway, Dr. Sergio Tischler & Dr. Alfonso García Vela, Researchers and Professors, Department of Postgraduate Studies on Sociology, Institute of Social Sciences & Humanities, BUAP - Meritorious Autonomous University of Puebla, Mexico.
It seems that we are living in dark times. The emergence of extreme-right in Europe and North America, and violent death having become normality in Latin America and other parts of the world are signs of the rise of these dark times. Barbarity regressing in our world with much intensity reveals its signs of violence in everyday life. But our preoccupation is not reduced in the diagnosis of the emergence of barbarity. Our preoccupation is how to stop the capitalistic barbarity, but also how we can envision the possibility of emergence of a different world. To that purpose, our perspective, deriving from the questions of Critical Theory, is focusing on the emergence of social conflicts within, against and beyond the capitalistic barbarity. That is, resistance and rebellion in our dark times and the potentiality of a utopian thinking, which can vision an emancipated world, where will be abolished the objectification of humanity and the irrational frontiers designated by power, capital and the state.

The focus will be on the whole research process: from data collection, generation, curation and storage to data analysis and data output and access.
