The 2014 Millennium Development Goals Congress in Asia is an international event that will coincide with the 69th Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony. Participants of the congress will be provided with a special invitation to the memorial ceremony. There will also be a free guided tour and a presentation by a survivor of the atomic bombing.

It has been fifteen years since the the leaders of 189 countries established the Millennium Declaration which outlined eight target areas of concern to be achieved by the year 2015. The MDGs emphasize shared accountability and reciprocal obligations among developed and developing countries for key development outcomes. In addition, the global MDG effort rests on the premise that participation of every member of society is essential to the attainment of these goals. Not only is cooperation needed between countries, but campaigns need to mobilize society and bring together different actors of society – governments, private sector, civil society, the general public and the media – to be successful.

The 2014 Millennium Development Goals Congress in Asia invites scholarly interactions among academics, researchers, doctoral students, and representatives from industry, entrepreneurs, and non-profit and non-governmental organization professionals.

Authors are welcome to submit from a range of topics, perspectives, and disciplines. The range of research submissions may include conceptual, empirical, experimental, and case studies.

The congress theme of The Future We Want: Perspectives on the Millennium Development Goals for Asia seeks to explore such issues and their links to the notion of sustainability through the combined and holistic lenses of an interdisciplinary approach.

Asia MDGs 2014 is an international, peer-reviewed congress. Full papers are welcome, but not required. Registered participants with an accepted abstract and/or refereed full paper will be published in the Asia MDGs 2014 Congress Proceedings (ISSN 2188-398X).

Taking into account the wider themes of the goals and sustainable development, in general, the congress will focus on the following sub-themes, which should be submitted through our online application:
