The College of Integrative Studies and the Wee Kim Wee Centre are delighted to announce the 8th Annual SMU-Soka International Peace Symposium scheduled for 2 February 2024. This symposium, an annual event rooted in the Big Questions of Singapore Management University’s Core Curriculum, is designed to encourage public engagement and discourse on relevant issues in the contemporary world.
This year's symposium, titled “Happiness in Times of Crisis: Pain, Precarity, and Planetary Suffering,” delves into the intricate relationships between achieving happiness and well-being during periods of adversity and crisis. Utilising a multidisciplinary approach that involves experts in academics, policymaking, activism, creative practices, and industries, the event serves as a platform for collective learning and constructive dialogue, fostering a deeper understanding of how we can expand the frontiers of our knowledge in the pursuit of happiness.
