Sarajevo the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina shares a common heritage and a common history of change within this European region that has affected the lives of the people in many ways. Coping with change has never been easy for individuals, groups, communities and nations.
The societies and nations are expected to become resilient and meet the ever growing needs, aspirations, expectations of its people while continuing to develop a future that is peaceful and hope fulfilling.
This conference for the first time pilots and urges the use of the metaphor of ‘the solution societies’ rather than ‘problem societies’ and offers a rather modest but robust agenda around which a number of papers, ideas and narratives from across the world are invited. What would be known as the ‘Sarajevo Conversations- 2011 will be the precursor for a progressive conversation of positive people, positive change and positive societies within the region and elsewhere in the world.

We are hoping that experts from around the world would consider this as an opportunity to talk about their work and participants would have opportunity to learn and network for future development. The Conference is set for transformational dialogue and metalogue and to build a truly learning society. The road that societies need to take to reach the ever growing demands of its people for peaceful and hope fulfilling, designs, structures, governance and institutions is bound to be a phenomenal challenge.
Cutting the ties with processes of central control in institutional politics, economics and people governance and to move into empowering of individuals, groups, communities, smaller organizations and businesses, the conference believes, is ripe with surmountable contests.
Successes stories and narrative accounts from around the world, how some societies fared well and continue to build supportive ethos to bring about attitudinal change in the context of massive changes that they have gone through, would be of great interest to this conference. We believe such accounts, papers academic and practiotioner perspectives will generate parallel thinking and assist in building a parallel processes for collaborative working around the world.
