United Nations Millennium Declaration (2000) recognizes Solidarity as
one of the fundamental values of international relations in the 21st
Century. Within a community or society, in terms of values, ideas,
views, interests and norms, social solidarity can be understood as a
binding force for cooperation of equal members to work together in
order to achieve a common goal of social development.

Solidarity is also a core principle of religious social teachings by
emphasizing shared responsibilities and commitments to enable
everyone to develop his or her own potentials and capacities. It is
about the respect for and the promotion of human dignity and rights
of each member in society.

In the context of Vietnam, social solidarity has become the main
driving force for the national development in the context of
globalization and international integration, because it creates the
joint aspirations and forces of different social strata and
communities of the Vietnamese society. In terms of the multi-cultural
and multi-religious situation, social solidarity has become the
source of strength of many peoples and the decisive factor to
guarantee the sustainable achievement of the Vietnamese social
construction and to safeguard the Homeland of the Vietnamese people.

In this light, we see the close relationship between social
solidarity and social development. The Conference will have focus the
following subtopics:

1. The relationship between social solidarity and social development
2. Social solidarity and social development in the multi-cultural
  context (cultural traditions)
3. The role of the state in promoting social solidarity and social
4. Social solidarity, social development and market economy
5. The role of social organizations in promoting social solidarity
  for social development
6. Global solidarity and sustainable development
