We are pleased to announce the KIP Multidisciplinary Conference to be held at the Olayan School of Business at the American University of Beirut on March 31st and April 1st 2017. In line with the objectives of our project (http://thekipproject.info/), the two-day KIP Project conference strives to support and augment a multi-stakeholder dialogue concerning discrimination and sexual harassment related to gender and sexuality in Lebanon.
We plan through this conference to provide a space for participants to explore multi- and cross-sector initiatives and partnerships to better mobilize and take action in the process of addressing discrimination and sexual harassment within our national and regional context. Throughout the conference, we hope to generate recommendations for policies, practices and theory that are informed by multiple local perspectives and that provide momentum for specific ways through which we can support each other in the implementation of positive change forward.
We welcome submissions from diverse fields including public health, medicine, management, development, economics, gender studies, human geography, economics, psychology, political science, public administration, philosophy, theater studies and other fields. Work may be theoretical or based on empirical work, as well as providing a forum for educating participants. We are also keen to include artists whose work focuses on the complex representations of people’s experience of discrimination and sexual harassment, and how this is shaping contemporary understandings of related issues.
