From family which is the smallest social unity and organization to
city and state, from city and state to global existence, in each
stage and social condition the position of the individual in the
whole which it belongs is important. Especially recently, with the
rapid globalization the relationships, break downs, obligations,
separations and the division of labor between society and individual
has become the focus of interdisciplinary scientific curiosity. The
entire philosophical and social scientific doctrines that emerged in
19th century and the twentieth century ideas were particularly
dedicated to understand the relations between society and the
individual. The central issue of liberal economic and legal models
which have had a great impact all over the world after the World War
II is the relations between society and the individual.

In social contracts and practices, it is not easy to find the balance
between the rights, authority and the freedoms of individuals and the
obligations, responsibilities and individual workload arising from
the coexistence of the individuals. The corporate world is almost a
world that arises from the regulation of relations between one and
many. The common demand, necessity and acceptance of each person in
the global scale social change process is to be able to live in a
normed social order without having to give up and deny oneself. In
this period where the end of globalization is discussed, it is likely
to witness the increasing decrease of trust in interpersonal
communication and relations and mass of people receding from each
other. This requires both redetermination and redefinition of the
shared values and differences in the dilemma between society and the
individual. In each determination, the structure and functioning of
the society changes as well as the position and response of the
individual. Thus, in today’s world; the most current and unresolved
problematics of many disciplines such as philosophy, sociology,
anthropology, ethnology, economics, psychology, political science,
international relations, history, geography, law and theology are the
re-determination of the variable boundaries and the norms of
society-individual interaction over and over again according to the

Many concepts arising from the dilemma between society and the
individual are the subject of interdisciplinary research and studies.
One of the most important reasons in the emergence of concepts such
as identity, belonging, difference, body, culture, other, tradition,
innovation, extremism, values, recognition policies, subject, power,
overlapping consensus, communicative action, post-modernism,
globalization, social media and self is to reach a sustainable
harmony between society and the individual.

Reflecting on the possibilities of not only conceptual but also
factual harmony between society and the individual, making researches
and discussions about it is a common task of both intellectual and
academic circles. Recommendations that can be developed to
re-establish the reduced trust among people and individual’s
embracement of society are the common goal of academic research and
debate on society-individual dilemma. The fifth International
Symposium on Religious Studies and Global Peace will be held in
Mardin in 2019 with the theme of “Shared Values and Differences in
Society-Individual Dilemma”. The aim of this symposium is to
determine the real factual implications of the two concepts for a
lasting peace and to be a guide in this context.

All interested followers, more specifically domestic and foreign
academics, researchers, intellectuals, poets, artists, teachers,
students and NGO members and representatives may apply to the
symposium. We think that all intellectual and academic contributions
concerning the society-individual dilemma from all branches of social
sciences are valuable.
