Scholars define social resilience as ability of individuals, groups or organizations to continue their existence, or remain more or less stable amidst the disorder or disturbance that derived from various factors. Hence, social resilience is basically both individual resilience as well as collective/community resilience, that show abilities to tolerate, absorb, cope with and adjust to environmental and social threats that refers to a social unit or a group to collectively cope with or respond to external stresses and disturbances resulting from social, political, and environmental changes. The concept evolved from the understanding of a capacity to respond, which also include the ability of  adapting and learning, while acknowledging the roles of power, politics and participation. With current rapid social changes, digital technology advancement, natural and man-made disaster, the issues of social resilience intersected significantly with the community’s life in coping with various social, political as well as environmental challenges. 

 

With those backgrounds, the conference will address few sub themes related to social resilience  such as migration and mobility, marginalized group inclusiveness, and social work, social justice and poverty, medicine and public health, environment and disaster management, psychological resilience and Islamic psychoteraphy, social coherence and  social vulnerability. adaptive capacities, social welfare, livelihood and sustainability,  future crises and developing transformative and adaptive capacities. All of the sub-themes could be addressed from the fields of political science, sociology, anthropology, environmental science, psychology, gender studies, and such, that intersected well with the Islamic studies researches. More importantly, this exposure is also combined with the perspectives of re-orienting the Islamic studies or de-colonizing social sciences in general, or Islamic studies in particular.
