ΠΡΟΣΚΛΗΣΗ ΥΠΟΒΟΛΗΣ ΠΕΡΙΛΗΨΕΩΝ ΑΡΘΡΩΝ – ΕΤΗΣΙΟ ΣΥΝΕΔΡΙΟ ΔΙΕΘΝΟΥΣ ΟΡΓΑΝΙΣΜΟΥ ΦΟΙΤΗΤΩΝ ΠΟΛΙΤΙΚΩΝ ΕΠΙΣΤΗΜΩΝ 2024

Ο Διεθνής Οργανισμός Φοιτητών Πολιτικών Επιστημών (International Association for Political Science Students – IAPSS) αποτελεί έναν ανεξάρτητο και πολιτικά αχρωμάτιστο φοιτητικό οργανισμό που έχει ως κύριους στόχους την προώθηση της ακαδημαϊκής ελευθερίας και τη δημιουργία ακαδημαϊκών και επαγγελματικών ευκαιριών για νέους/νέες και φοιτητές/φοιτήτριες. Έχοντας ως κινητήριο δύναμη την αξία της δημοκρατικής και αδιάβλητης διακυβέρνησης, ο Οργανισμός απευθύνεται σε φοιτητές/φοιτήτριες και νέους/νέες ερευνητές/ερευνήτριες που ασχολούνται με θέματα που άπτονται της πολιτικής επιστήμης, των διεθνών σχέσεων, της νομικής επιστήμης αλλά και της πολιτικής φιλοσοφίας.

Για πρώτη φορά στην ιστορία του Οργανισμού, το ετήσιο συνέδριο πρόκειται να διοργανωθεί στην Αθήνα. Το θέμα που έχει επιλεχθεί για το συνέδριο είναι «Το Μέλλον της Διακυβέρνησης στην Ψηφιακή Εποχή» («Future of Governance in the Digital Era»). Το Συνέδριο θα διεξαχθεί εξ ολοκλήρου στα αγγλικά. Ακολουθεί το κείμενο πρόσκλησης υποβολής περιλήψεων άρθρων. Παρακαλούμε προσέξτε ότι το κόστος συμμετοχής για φοιτητές/τριες Ελληνικών ιδρυμάτων είναι €30, και όχι από €95 έως €135 όπως για άλλες χώρες που συγκαταλέγονται στο Group A, όπως αναγράφεται στην αντίστοιχη πρόσκληση στην ιστοσελίδα του συνεδρίου.

“Future of Governance in the Digital Era”
Athens, Greece

The digital era has revolutionized the way societies function, communicate, and are governed. The integration of technology into governance processes has shown the potential to enhance efficiency, transparency, and citizen engagement. Although the rate of adoption of digital tools among government has been slow at first, the growing accessibility of mobile Internet, and notably the COVID-19 pandemic, have forced government transformation to adapt to the digital era. Governments have taken notice of how digital tools help to accelerate operations and optimize resources, allowing for a more effective allocation of public funds. Governmental entities started making use of data-driven decision-making as the ability to collect and analyze vast amounts of data empowered them to make informed decisions based on evidence and trends.

However, the high pace of progress of digital technologies presents challenges to governance. Crucial questions about privacy, security, and the equitable distribution of digital resources have been posed, while the recent developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have raised concerns about the risks created by the growing accessibility to AI models. The governments-signatories to The Bletchley Declaration have highlighted that “many risks arising from AI are inherently international in nature, and so are best addressed through international cooperation”. As we navigate through an increasingly interconnected and technologically driven global landscape, the future of governance faces unprecedented challenges and opportunities.

There are many implications of the digital era on issues such as human rights, privacy, and the rule of law. How do digital advancements affect the balance between security and civil liberties?

What challenges emerge in ensuring ethical governance in the face of rapid technological change? How are developing nations navigating the challenges posed by digitalization? How do advancements in technology impact the security of government systems and citizens’ personal data?

With this conference theme, IAPSS hopes to encourage students and junior scholars of political science and related disciplines to participate in this exciting academic discussion. If you have never presented a paper before, this is your best chance to start!
