scholars, and learning from other experts from around the world and
from a variety of academic disciplines. The interdisciplinary and
international focus of the conference draws world-class speakers and
keeps people coming back year after year.

Special Theme

The IAFOR 2021–2022 Special Theme is “Resilience”

Resilience is the ability to resist being affected, or to recover
readily from setback and adversity, and the past year has been one of
enormous turbulence and upheaval. Nobody has been left untouched by
the impact of the global pandemic, and great change has been forced
upon us all.

COVID-19 has underlined the extent to which we suffer together as
one, but also how the experience of a global pandemic has been very
different and unequal. This has had a woeful impact on the already
marginalised and dispossessed, further evidencing that countries are
not equal in their ability to provide for and protect their people.
The pandemic has also created questionable narratives and false
dichotomies in approaches to finding solutions to the myriad problems
that COVID-19 has either caused or exacerbated.

Humans can be by turn extraordinarily delicate, and remarkably
resilient and we are now living through and witnessing an
extraordinary period of history. However, as with any period of great
change, there is a window of opportunity that follows where one has
the chance to enact and bring about change for the better. The
pandemic has also allowed many of us the space to rethink our
relationship with both ourselves and those immediately around us, but
also with the wider world. This is a crisis both global and local,
both shared and individual.

That time to rethink and reimagine is now as we attempt to regroup
and rebuild. We need to build back, but do so in a way that is
better, stronger and fairer. Forged by adversity, we have the
opportunity to follow divergent paths towards a future that we help
create, and where, to borrow Heaney, hope and history may rhyme.
