Overall aim of the 6th conference

Consistent with the overall aim of the International Community, Work & Family conference, this 6th conference aims to increase knowledge on community, work and family relations from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

The conference is organised by the Department of Urban Studies and the Centre for Work life and Evaluation Studies at Malmö University. The 6th international conference begins with a pre-conference doctoral workshop on the 19th of May and the international conference will occur on the 20th-22nd of May 2015. The doctoral workshop and the conference provide opportunities for exchanging ideas, theories and methods about future research and practical solutions addressing work-life dilemmas and/or community issues.

Call for paper for the 6th Conference

The relations between community, work and family are constantly questioned in different spatial and temporal contexts. Our contemporary society creates diverse challenges for individuals and organisations to reach meaningful relations between these three life domains. The doctoral workshop and the 6th International Community, Work & Family conference focuses on how community, work and family relate to each other in a meaningful way in time and space. The workshop and conference focus on meaningful relations within 6 themes as presented in the diagram below.

Six themes

Read more about the 6 themes.

For each theme, we welcome original and innovative scientific contribution in the form of papers, symposia and posters addressing meaningful relations between at least two domains. We invite submissions in different research fields and possibly multi-theoretical frames. We search for research at different levels of analysis such as individual, couple, organizational, national, etc. We encourage submissions providing original empirical context and theory development that focuses on practical implications.
