Faculty of Social and Political Science Universitas Muhammadiyah Makassar in collaboration with Asia Pacific Society for Public Affairs (APSPA) organize the International Conference on Ethics in Governance under the topic of “Intersecting Law, Religion, and Politics”. This conference aims to provide a platform for scholars, researchers and practioners to share their insight, ideas and experiences.

In this era, the heavy burden of civilization is a narrative about ethics, especially in relation to social society issues and nationality. Cross cutting issues such as Cultural, law and society problems, character building and education, governance ethics problem, global economic crisis, and development crisis, have emerged and need to be responded quickly. In order to benefit from the opportunities and to manage the threats, understanding and cooperation among actors whether on international, national or local level are required to deal with those cross cutting issues.

Therefore, we invite scholars, researchers and practioners to participate in the conference and contibute their ideas and recommendation in dealing with recent issues on social politics. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Makassar on December 19-20th, 2016!
