Conference Theme: "Brave New World"

March 20–22, 2011 | The Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan

Since its inaugural year, The Asian Conference on Ethics, Religion and Philosophy (ACERP) has been held alongside The Asian Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences (ACP) in the Kansai region of Japan. The 2011 event offered a diverse variety of papers that encouraged interdisciplinary reflection and the forging of new relations across national borders. Although the programme was interrupted by an above-average number of withdrawals due to the earthquake of early March 2011, the conference was a success, and provided a solid foundation for the event to grow in 2012.

Featured Speakers and conference committee members included Professor Ken Kawan Soetanto of Waseda University, Japan, The Reverend Professor Stuart D. B. Picken, Mr Lowell Sheppard of the HOPE International Development Agency, Japan, and Professor Steve Cornwell of Osaka Jogakuin University, Japan.
