Mu-Jeong Kho (Academic Affiliation: University College London), the Chair of the Institute for Political Economy and Development (IPEAD) , finally received an acceptance letter for his very short abstract & paper submitted to Building Bridges - Interdisciplinary Conference: Building Bridges in a Complex World, which is held in CHANIA, CRETE, GREECE | 6-8 July 2017.








The Building Bridges is: 
"A Radically Different Kind of Conference
A very warm welcome!
We are a network of academics and practitioners motivated by our work experiences inside and outside of Europe. With this being the first conference, we are hoping to turn this into an annual gathering to build bridges on three different levels: between theorists and practitioners, between people from different disciplines and between people from different parts of the world.
Our personal experiences in education and the general job market are that job insecurity, isolation and competitiveness –through constant evaluations, satisfaction surveys, pressure to secure funding and ultimately generate income– create a culture that encourages cut-throat encounters. On a political and professional level, it leads to a lack of collaboration and solidarity between groups and professions. On a personal level, it makes us feel alienated, which obviously affects our life satisfaction and mental health.The close link between personal and professional matters is seen but not talked about in formal conference spaces and only finds its place in private dinner table conversations with people we feel comfortable with. It is in this spirit that we invite you to contribute to build an intellectual home for all of us."  (Building Bridges 2017;
