Conference Background

The pandemic turned to endemic has pushed many countries in the world to digitalize almost all sectors in order to accelerate the development. Every crisis moments create momentum of opportunity to revive and reawaken the hidden potencies of nations. Instead of given thought about  the digital culture, the social changes rapidly occurred. The discourses of digital security, cyber threats, monetization, crypto currency, big data, internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and social media had taken us concern about future generations. The very existence of AI application distorts the academic world too where the difference of human and bot could hardly determine. Chat GPT also opened academic eyes where the human analytics skill would perish against the advancement of technology that could provide more precise answers, despite lack of wisdom. Alipay has turned MSMEs to wider market and reach even small villagers to allow opportunity reach them. Gojek eases the burden of stagnancy in making affordable and comfortable public transportation where at the same time reduce the traffic frequency. Would everyone be fitted with the recent situation or still some country left behind? Whereas, for some parts of the world the very basic needs like electricity, elementary education, clean water, healthy food, and secure shelter are still luxurious and hard to access for certain part of the world. The gap disparity remains and recent world order is not everyone’s favor or answer for all problems.

Meanwhile, the attack of HAMAS to the Israeli shocked the world when the Operation Aqsa Flood launched in 7th of October 2023, days gone by the casualties mounted and the psychology of Palestinian disturbed to the extent incurable. Worse things worst Iran retaliates Israel after the attack to its consulate in Syria. The international society and global politics failed to show solidarity amidst the humanitarian catastrophe in Palestine, where Western alliance continously rejected the cease fire in the UNGA. The US as the global power failed to show its quality as the world leader which prove the political constellation moved to the multipolarity. The injustice still persists and the voice to transform world order in UN resonates. The consequence lies on the transformation of global security where each nations pursue its own weaponization to ensure its national survival and well-being in the face of uncertainty and unpredictable threats.

The opportunity arises in the sector of global halal industry. The player is not only Muslim countries, but non-Muslim countries are taking part. The industry expanded from food to banking and financial system, as well as tourism and fashion. Countless exhibition in regards with halal industry appeared and triggered more expansion in market as the global expense in halal industry significantly increased. This conference will become the melting pot of brilliant idea and push forward the solution to the global problem by making strategic decision into useful resource for all to solve the matters.


Current security system has proven failed to prevent conflict escalation, as the aggression of Israel ravages Palestinian and disturbs regional stability as Iran involves in the recent attack. UNSC, NATO, CSTO, AUKUS, Quad, and all forms of security pact remain paralyzed in the face of national interest that makes a call for global security transformation getting louder in order to prevent total war among states and international societies.

It is unprecedented until the utility of internet and information technology reached certain extent of human primary necessity. Most countries compete to advance its cyber instrument to the point where it can possess a  threat toward other nation or ‘perceived’ adversary. The quest of hegemony and global role demands a fierce rivalry that starting from regional, influencing geopolitical constellation. Meanwhile, the actor was not always state where the non-state actor plays significant influence in giving challenge to a new global order towards multipolarity.

The history has proven the strong relationship between nations in Southeast Asia where in the first and second century the voyage from China has traveled the South China Sea and reached Java island. The spread of Chinese merchants to Southeast Asia shaped the tradition and customary, but in a certain point the dispute cannot be prevented. The strategic relations must be nurtured with the balance interdependency and respect to the territorial integrity in the face of international law.

Digital gap has become an issue with the rise of Internet of Things (IoT) and digital economics. The mission of ‘no one left behind’ have to be realized in an effective regulation and policy from government to overcome the inbalance utilization of information technology to pursue prosperity. It must aim the inclusivity where everyone enjoy the internet and use it for good purpose, in particular growing the economy of nation.

The independence of a country is a one step of decolonization and out of colonial legacy that destruct the collective memory, history, and prevent the development. The colonization must be condemned and there must be a purge toward the post-colonial nation. Thus, the human architecture, urban planning, social engineering and good governance have to take role in accordance with postcolonialism where it aims to advance built-environment, not only for humankind, but for all living creatures have to savour the environment justice and decolonization.

Muslim has taking an important part to bring a renew civilization to the world. The Islamism and Muslim lifestyle that abide sharia (Islamic law) creates a great opportunity to shape a just economics. It is becoming global phenomenon where its lifestyle making profit for non-Muslim countries to provide Halal goods and service. In the next decades, the competition will turn to collaboration among countries to bring the halal industries to most sectors in the contemporary global economics.

This sub-theme will be bidded to designated speakers and resources to contribute to the mission of UNESCO to create a good Management of Social Transformations (MOST) programme. Indonesian Research Agency (BRIN) contributes in the making of discourse and tayloring the agenda of the sub-theme, especially to lever local knowledge to be useful in the context of national resilience against all the challenges, including climate change that becoming threat to the existence of creations accross the globe.

Contemporary world is possessed with endless problems and it requires solution and resolution to overcome the dynamic challenges. The multi/inter/trans-discipline is a paradigm in the last decades to be used as baseline in order to solve matters. It is strongly related to the contemporary trends in the near future which cannot stand alone in a certain discipline, where the collaboration of multi-stakeholders is necessary. We encourage the discourse of collaborative research with the multi/inter/trans-discipline approach aimed to present an effective and applicable solutions to the global challenges and national problems.
