The 6th Slovenian Social Sciences Conference will be based on a relatively broad focus of social transformations. They include a wide range of political, economic and cultural dimensions that can be observed from the macro level of social systems and structural changes to the micro levels of varieties of aspects of individuals’ lives. The world has never before been so closely interconnected and interdependent as it is today by the processes of globalisation, which implies global consequences of the local events and vice versa. Moreover, the increasing ability of small events to generate enormous consequences has led to the new links between the micro and the macro levels of analyses making them increasingly interconnected as well. However, we do not only intend to describe and explain social transformations but also to address the issue how to deal with them. Confronted with the issue of managing social transformations, the decision makers at various levels, in different parts of the world and in different social fields or subsystems are equipped by an increasingly rich variety of tools of leadership, governance and management. On the other hand, they are also confronted by the growing societal complexity, which may make the outcomes both less predictable and the errors less repairable. We plan to organise the panels dealing with political, economic, cultural and individual transformations as well as the students’ panel dealing with the same issues.
