The Network on Engineering, Social Justice and Peace (ESJP) has issued a call for participation ahead of its Annual Meeting in Buenos Aires in August 2014. STEPS Centre member Adrian Smith is among the speakers.
Conference themes include:
- How can engineering and engineers contribute to community development?
- How can engineering and engineers contribute to the production of Social Justice and Peace when historically and currently many forms of institutionalized engineering have been at the service of social injustice and war?
- How should engineers capable of producing positive impacts in terms of Social Justice and Peace be educated?
- How can/should engineers from the global north work with engineers from the global south (e.g., projects? organizations? academic programs?) to produce social justice?
